A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ruled in favor of a nearly 20 year old Rancho Palos Verdes view restoration ordinance , rejecting an argument by property owners who the City required to clear trees on their property that their neighbors had waited too long to request that their views be restored. Even though the judge ruled in favor of the ordinance requiring the removal of the trees, the judge called the ordinance "unfair"
The view ordinance, passed by voters in 1989, does not have any explicit or implied deadline by which residents must apply to the city to have their views restored or protected, and the court has no authority to dictate a deadline, the judge ruled.
