ROBLE VISTA ASSOCS. v. BACON, H023150
The City of Palo Alto's Rental Housing Stabilization Ordinance, which provides that a landlord is required to offer a one-year lease to a prospective tenant, is not preempted by state law, because it addresses the length of leases and when they must be offered, and thus does not duplicate, contradict, or enter a field fully occupied by state law.
