It you want to keep your eyes on rent control, watch the U.S. Supreme Court case, Fisher vs. the City of Berkeley.
How the court decides this case can affect rent control laws in Los Angeles, West Hollywood and Santa Monica, as well as throughout the United States.
A few years ago, the Supreme Court said cities have to comply with federal anti-trust laws. These laws prevent people from unfairly trying to control prices.
Since then, a group of landlords sued to break Berkeley's rent control law. They argued that since the whole idea of rent control is to control prices, it was against the law.
