In Wolfson, the court held that landlords cannot arbitrarily discriminate against children and families with children. This Note will discuss this aspect of the Wolfson decision and its significance and implications. Wolfson resolved the issue of discrimination in rental housing against families with children, which will be of particular benefit to women who have been hardest hit by such discrimination and by the shortage of rental housing. But, Wolfson also may have extended the coverage of the Unruh Civil Rights Act to include classes other than children. This Note will also discuss this equally important aspect of the Wolfson decision.
