U.S. Supreme Court

Case Status


Docket Number


Cert. Denied


Questions Presented

1. Whether the provisions of the RSL that prevent a property owner from regaining exclusive possession and control of her property after the expiration of a lease effect per se physical takings.

2. Whether, by mandating consideration of tenant ability to pay in setting maximum rents, the RSL forces a subset of owners “alone to bear public burdens which, in all fairness and justice, should be borne by the public as a whole,” and thereby effects a regulatory taking as Justices Scalia and O’Connor concluded in Pennell v. City of San Jose, 485 U.S. 1, 22 (1988).
