From California and NoozHawk.com, Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Denise de Bellefeuille issued a decision this week siding with the tenants of Rancho Mobile Home Park in a lengthy battle over rent control. After years of pricey legal battles, the city had approved an agreement with the community owner, which lead to a suit by residents. According to the report, in a closely related case, the original one on rent control between the city and the Guggenheims, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently decided in favor of the city, solidifying rent control for the other communities in the city. Because the city initially had approved a development agreement with the owners of Rancho Mobile Home Park, the rent control ruling did not affect it. The owners may appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
