Same-sex couples face housing bias
Washington • Same-sex couples are treated less favorably than heterosexual couples when seeking information about rental housing advertised over the Internet, according to a first-of-its-kind national study from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The study, released Tuesday, found that gay and lesbian couples were less likely to receive a response to email inquiries about rental properties than straight couples. It also found that gay couples experienced discrimination slightly more often than lesbian couples.
HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said the findings show a need "to continue our efforts to ensure that everyone is treated the same when it comes to finding a home to call their own, regardless of their sexual orientation."
Federal housing laws do not bar discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. But 20 states and Washington, D.C., have passed such laws.
Judge sets Fort Hood suspect trial for July 9
Fort Hood, Texas • Jury selection will start July 9 in the murder trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.
The judge set the date after rejecting Maj. Nidal Hasan's request for a three-month trial delay. Col. Tara Osborn, the judge, says testimony will start Aug. 6 at the earliest.
Jury selection might be put on hold briefly if a jury consultant hired for Hasan's defense has to work on another case for a week.
Hasan faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted in the attack that left 13 dead on the Texas Army post.
