Can a city withhold a permit to build new housing units unless the builder ‘donates’ 15% of the new home units at a price below the cost of building the homes? PLF challenged just such a shakedown scheme enacted by the City of San Jose, CA.  This week, the California Supreme Court released its unfavorable decision in California Building Industry Association v. City of San Jose. In this podcast, Tony Francois, PLF Senior Staff Attorney who argued the case before the CA Supreme Court, explains why this ruling is terrible for all residents in California, no matter what their income, and what the next steps might be to take the case to the Supreme Court of the United States.
