The California Apartment Association has appealed the unfavorable decision issued in its lawsuit challenging Pasadena’s rent control law, which was adopted by voters in the fall. 

Once the Superior Court has provided the case record to the Court of Appeal – a process which can take several months – CAA will submit to a brief to the appellate court arguing why the unfavorable portions of the earlier ruling could be overturned, to which the city of Pasadena and other parties can respond. 

After the case is fully briefed by the parties, there will be the opportunity to have oral argument in front of the panel of three judges who will decide the case.
