The Justice Department is weighing a rollback of civil rights regulations designed to protect against discrimination, The Washington Post reports.
Driving the news: An internal DOJ memo directed senior civil rights officials to determine if it would be possible to change or remove "disparate impact" regulations from the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which deem actions as discriminatory even if discrimination was not intended. The Education Department and the Department of Housing and Urban Development are considering similar action, per WashPost.
