Hello, and thanks for the question.

The courts should consider that this zoning law would run afoul of the Federal Fair Housing Act because it would foster discrimination (in most instances) based on race, color, and national origin. In many cases, it would also foster discrimination based on religion, as relatives often share a common religious affiliation.

Hope this helps!
