Since 1992, the Department of Justice has filed 98 pattern and practice testing cases with evidence directly generated from the Fair Housing Testing Program. The vast majority of testing cases filed to date are based on testing evidence that involved allegations of agents misrepresenting the availability of rental units or offering different terms and conditions based on race, and/ or national origin and/or familial status. Of the 98 suits filed, 96 have been resolved. Of these 96 resolved cases, the Department has recovered more than $12.9 million, including over $2.3 million of civil penalties and over $10.5 million in other damages.
