A coalition of San Jose civic groups has called for a crackdown on the sale of cheap, higher-alcohol wine favored by many of the city's homeless. Under a proposed ordinance, the city would restrict the number of new liquor stores downtown and cut back sales of the wine containing up to 21% alcohol. Support for the plan came three weeks after community pressure in San Francisco persuaded Gallo and Canandaigua Wine Co. Inc.

In a move that may make it the first city to treat marijuana clubs like any other businesses, San Jose has proposed zoning rules that regulate where pot can be grown and sold. City officials Tuesday announced "medical marijuana dispensary" rules that would allow pot clubs to operate in commercial areas and grow marijuana on site. However, marijuana smoking would be banned on the premises because city law prohibits smoking of any kind inside public buildings and offices.

Stepping into a growing debate over the use of court orders to fight gangs, the California Supreme Court decided Thursday to examine how far cities can go in restricting behavior by gang members. In a decision that will affect some of Southern California's anti-gang campaigns, the court voted unanimously to review a San Jose injunction that prohibits gang members from gathering in public, possessing spray-paint cans and using words or gestures that refer to gangs.

The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide the constitutionality of a rent control law that forces landlords to hold down rent increases for poor tenants. This is the latest in a series of legal challenges to rent control, but marks the first time the justices will consider whether such laws violate the Constitution's ban on taking private property for public use. Last year the justices rejected the notion that the laws constituted illegal price fixing.

Limiting a popular anti-gang strategy employed by many Southern California cities, a state Court of Appeal has ruled that the city of San Jose lacks the power to control gangs by prohibiting behavior that is otherwise legal. The ruling could wipe out controversial portions of several court orders aimed at gang members in the San Fernando Valley, Norwalk and Burbank, authorities said.

Limiting a popular anti-gang strategy employed by many Southern California cities, an appeals court has ruled that San Jose lacks the power to control gangs through injunctions prohibiting behavior that is otherwise legal. If upheld on appeal, the ruling could have the effect of voiding controversial portions of several court orders now in effect in Los Angeles, Norwalk and Burbank, authorities said. The decision "narrowed" and "limited" the San Jose injunction, said San Jose City Atty.

The Supreme Court, rejecting a major challenge to rent control, ruled Wednesday that a San Jose law limiting increases charged by landlords is a "legitimate exercise" of local government power. The 6-2 ruling dealt a sharp setback to conservatives who believed that the court under Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist would frown on such government restrictions on private property owners.
