Saint Paul/ Magner v. Gallagher’ has nation wide impact!
For 6 long years many of us here at the town hall warned the city and public this lawsuit was something to be taken seriously. We spoke of the city's rogue housing policy that exceeded state housing codes. We said the rogue policy was having a negative impact on affordable housing within the city. We spoke of deceit by city official and offered evidence of this deceit. I and many others here drew a line in the sand and sided with the landlords and "the truth". I pray for justice and the only way justice will be served in this case is if the plaintiffs are awarded a jury settlement that is shocking. This is the only way to send a message to the nation that institutional racism is not acceptable.
I understand clearly the difference between Disparate Impact & Disparate Treatment. I am just an average Joe but after 6 years of reading legal briefs and attending court hearings I have a good understanding of the facts. Why Disparate Treatment is not a part of this case bewilders many of us who are aware of the facts. Many of you have read the affidavits of the victims here. Property investors and home owners have lost their homes to the city's rogue housing policies. In the wake of the city's rogue housing policy is broken families and ruined business's.
