The JCL Law Firm, APC obtained preliminary approval from the San Diego Superior Court for a class action settlement on behalf of hundreds of wrongfully evicted residential hotel tenants. The settlement will provide substantial financial compensation to the victims of the unlawful housing practice commonly known as the “28-day shuffle” and tens of thousands of dollars to a charity servicing San Diego’s low income and homeless population. The “28-day shuffle” is a common practice employed by motel and hotel operators that deprive long term guests of valuable property rights. Generally, motel and hotel guests that reside in a motel or hotel for 30 or more days, as their primary residence, earn valuable tenant rights under California law, including, enhanced due process prior to eviction. Some hotel and motel operators try to avoid these protections from vesting by temporarily forcing out their long-term tenants approximately every 28 days. This is the so-called and unlawful “28-day shuffle”. If you have lived in a California hotel or motel, as your primary residence, and have been forced to temporarily check-out and reregister, call the experienced class action lawyers at the JCL Law Firm at 1-888-498-6999 to learn about your rights!
