CitiApartments leveraged everything and seem to be losing badly.

For those of you who don't know, I attended a few blitzes put on by Citistop! and have done a bunch of outreach for the tenants' union so this is a really big deal to me, as well as the city of San Francisco. Much of their tactics were based on their having deep pockets, that is certainly not true so much any longer, particularly given that at some point they'll have to settle with the City itself.
We'll have to be on the look out for an uptick in worst practices, but if we can protect those tenants long enough to reach court, CitiApartments is now a whole lot more likely to get into the court cases which create precedents against them. They'll roll the dice in court more often.
