The city had granted the owner permission to convert the 377-unit mobile home park to purchased property, with the stipulation that 120 of the 377 units had to be sold before rent controls were lifted and that the owner provide financial assistance to current tenants to purchase the lots, as many were senior citizens on fixed incomes. The owner argued that the conditions imposed by the city were excessive and exceeded its powers; the court of appeals agreed. The city paid approximately $1 million to settle the claim, but did not admit to wrongdoing.
