Real Estate Cases To Watch In 2020

By Andrew McIntyre (January 1, 2020, 12:04 PM EST) -- Disputes over WeWork's use of data, New York's rent control law and a zoning decision by a city in the San Francisco Bay Area are among the cases real estate lawyers will be watching in 2020.

New York's sweeping rent control changes were quickly challenged after they became law last summer and that suit continues into 2020, while lawyers expect a recent zoning decision in San Mateo, California, to see a lot of attention and likely an appeal.

Lawyers are also watching a recent class action lawsuit in Illinois against WeWork, a case that concerns data privacy issues.
