Update: March 16, 2021
Plaintiffs filed for a second summary judgment. Judge Olson denied the plaintiff’s motion for reconsideration on partial summary judgement on March 16th.
Homestead Position on the Summary Judgment-
On 2/1/21, Judge Robert Olson ruled on the 1/22/21 hearing between plaintiff attorneys Andersson and Davis, 18 Paradise’s (Mr. Chen) attorney Ross, and MJ’s attorney Mr. Buri.
Mr. Andersson and Davis requested Judge Olson:
- To deny a protective order and seal that was requested by Homestead’s owner, 18 Paradise, to protect its confidential information and tax returns from the general public.
- To grant summary judgement due to amendments 6 and 7 being in violation of ordinances and removing them from CC&Rs.
Both requests by Mr. Andersson and Davis were denied by the judge and the plaintiffs will now need to go to trial, a very costly, lengthy process.
