CASE ENTRY

Adams Housing, LLC v. City of Salisbury, Maryland

In areas zoned for single-family living, Salisbury, Md. forbids more than two unrelated persons from living together. Officials: So landlord renting house to two brothers and a friend is breaking the law. District court: The ordinance is unconstitutionally vague. Fourth Circuit (2016): Is it? District court: It’s not. Fourth Circuit (2018): The renters have moved out; case is moot.
