A federal jury found that the City of Carson, through its Mobilehome Park Rent Control Ordinance, violated the Park Owner’s (Jim Goldstein) Fifth Amendment rights by denying a fair return on his property, Colony Cove Mobilehome Park.
According to the Los Angeles Daily Journal article, the case is far from over. The City’s immediate plan is to file a Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict.
This is a case to watch for California Mobilehome Park Owners and Mobilehome Owners.
