Long-running housing discrimination case finally ends


Sometimes, the wheels of justice turn slowly. Very slowly. But when a resolution finally is upon us, it is that much more remarkable simply because of the amount of time it took to get there.

Such is the case in one of the longest-running cases of housing discrimination in recent U.S. history.

It happened in a place called Hamtramck, Michigan, a community that today is noted for its diversity and where city officials are "striving to meet the needs of our citizens," according to the city's official website.

Only, it wasn't always that way. At least, not for all of its citizens.
