A couple who claim they were denied a loan for a house they were trying to buy in Coto de Caza because they are black can refile a racial discrimination lawsuit against the lending company, an appeals court said in a ruling released Thursday. George and Elizabeth Green initially won an $80,000 jury verdict in the case in July, 1990, despite the jury's finding that racial discrimination was not a factor in the lender's denial of a loan to the couple.
