•On October 2, 2016, the court entered a consent order in United States v. First Federal Bank of Florida (M.D. Fla.). The complaint, which was filed on September 9, 2016 by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida, alleges that the bank discriminated on the basis of sex and familial status by requiring two women on maternity leave to return to work before closing on a loan, which caused them to shorten their maternity leave. The case was referred to the Division after the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) received complaints, conducted an investigation, and issued a charge of discrimination.
