The temporary restraining order was denied. The suit will proceed, but could take months for a decision.
Yesterday, Multifamily NW filed a lawsuit with the US District Court to stop and repeal the Portland FAIR Ordinance.
As most of our clients know, this ordinance has caused some serious problems in the industry, for owners, property managers, and screening companies alike. The roll out of the ordinance has been less than transparent and provided no time for the industry to adjust. While we understand some of the intent behind the ordinance, it has been poorly developed and implemented. We are proud to support this move by Multifamily NW and will keep you posted with updates on the suit and the ordinance.
