Court Certifies Hooshmand Law Group Class Action

On March 23, 2015, San Mateo Superior Court Judge Marie Weiner certified Plaintiffs’ class action lawsuit against the Marymount Gateway and Summit Apartments in connection with the attempted condo conversion of the Marymount Gateway and Summit Apartments in Pacifica, California. The complaint charges that tenants’ rents were improperly raised and that tenants who moved out were not paid moving expenses.

The certified classes are:

  1. a) All persons who signed a lease at The Marymount Apartments and whose rent was raised after January 21, 2008, but before March 23, 2015 (the “Raised Rent Class”); and
  2. b) All persons who signed a lease at The Marymount Apartments who voluntarily moved out of The Marymount Apartments after December 15, 2008, but before March 23, 2015, and were not paid moving expenses (the “Moving Expense Class”).

Hooshmand Law Group was appointed as class counsel and will represent all class members who decide not to opt-out of the class.
