The city of Los Angeles’ Housing Committee unanimously passed a “tenant anti-harassment” ordinance Wednesday, although CAA succeeded in removing the worst parts of the proposal.

The ordinance takes a variety of steps to allow tenants to bring civil action against owners considered by the city to be engaging in harassment, such as threatening to report a tenant to immigration authorities, refusing to accept lawful rent payments from a tenant, or retaliating against a renter for participating in a tenant’s union.
