A&W Litigators Secure Landmark Ruling from the Ninth Circuit

Aleshire & Wynder attorneys Sunny K. Soltani, June Ailin, Steve Onstot and Jeff Malawy are thrilled to announce victory for the City of Carson in a landmark ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversing a nearly $8 million trial verdict against Carson.  In a unanimous decision, the Court of Appeals reversed a trial court ruling that application of the City’s rent control law violated the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution by “taking” the park owner’s property without just compensation, concluding instead that the City’s Rent Control Review Board acted lawfully in rejecting two requests to greatly increase the rents on over a thousand residents, many of whom are senior citizens, living at the Colony Cove Mobile Estates mobilehome park in Carson.
