City Council directs City Attorney to answer CAA Complaint

Closed session announcement January 24, 2017

The City has been sued by the California Apartment Association (Case #16CV304253). The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of several provisions of the Mountain View Community Stabilization and Fair Rent Act, which establishes rent control and just cause eviction, as approved by the voters in the November election, as well as the City’s Urgency Just Cause Eviction Ordinance. 

In tonight’s closed session, the City Council directed the City Attorney to answer the complaint filed by the CAA and oppose their request for a preliminary injunction.  The City Council approved this action by a unanimous vote of 6 to 0, with Margaret Abe-Koga absent.
