Codification

Pub. L. 106–568, § 203, andPub. L. 106–569, § 513, enacted substantially identical sections 803 ofPub. L. 104–330. This section is based on the text of section 803 ofPub. L. 104–330, as added by Pub. L. 106–569, § 513. Section 803 ofPub. L. 104–330, as added by Pub. L. 106–568, referred to title VIII of the Act popularly known as the Civil Rights Act of 1968 instead of the Fair Housing Act in subsecs. (c)(2)(E)(i)(I) and (d)(1). Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 is title VIII of Pub. L. 90–284which is known as the Fair Housing Act, see References in Text note above. The reference to “such title” in subsec. (c)(2)(E)(i)(I) probably refers to title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (the Fair Housing Act).
