PLF sues Highland for warrantless snooping on rental property
The City of Highland is violating fundamental constitutional rights by trying to coerce landlords and tenants into surrendering their freedom from unjustified, warrantless government intrusion on their property.
So argues a new federal lawsuit against the city. It challenges the city’s attempt to pressure a rental property owner and his tenants into allowing an open-ended search of their home by city inspectors, without any complaints or evidence that the property has any problems, and without an administrative warrant as required by the Fourth Amendment.
