Lincoln Place Tenants Ass'n v. City of L.A., B193235
In case seeking to compel defendant-city to enforce mitigation measures imposed under CEQA contained in a Vesting Tentative Tract Map concerning redevelopment of an apartment complex, and to enjoin evictions and unlawful detainer actions, judgment denying plaintiffs' petition for writ of mandate is reversed where defendants failed to enforce the mitigation conditions placed on the project when it failed to monitor whether the measures were being complied with, and when it permitted Ellis Act notices to be filed without taking action to determine whether such notices were valid.
