Contradictory Court Decision on Portland Relocation Fee Classifies it Illegal "Rent Control"

The Oregonian/Oregonlive reports that a second lawsuit involving the City of Portland Relocation fee determined the fee to be illegal under state law as a form of "rent control." According to the report, the decision now leaves the relocation fee issue in limbo for some time as an Oregon Court of Appeals ruling on the issue is not expected for several months. The paper says until the appeals court makes a determination, "the relocation payments could be decided case by case and judge by judge."
