Landlords Lose Request for Temporary Restraining Order Against City of Portland

Federal Judge Michael Simon of the U.S. District Court of Oregon denied a petition for stay of the City of Portland relocation assistance ordinance yesterday, saying it was "too late" as the ordinance had already taken effect. The case was remanded to State Court where the statewide pre-emption on rent control will be the key argument. A hearing is expected sometime before the end of April.
