Abstract

Moore v. City of East Clevelandl is undeniably a victory for extended families that do not conform to the nuclear family form because the state can no longer prevent them from living together in one household. In particular, it is a victory for families of color, immigrants, and economically vulnerable families who are more likely to reside with extended family members for cultural and economic reasons.
