Landlords suing Seattle over ‘First in Time’ law have their day in court
SEATTLE -- A Seattle law requiring landlords to take the first qualified tenant who applies has been in effect for more than year. But it’s also been in litigation for most of that time. Landlords who are suing the city of Seattle over the ordinance had their big day in court on Friday. They say the state already has laws preventing discrimination against renters and that Seattle’s policy is an unconstitutional overreach.
