Seattle’s First in Time overturned

A long awaited and needed victory for Seattle landlords yesterday, March 28, 2018, when Judge Parisien overturned Seattle’s First in Time (FIT) law saying the “FIT rule does not “directly or materially” advance the City’s interest in preventing discrimination because it precludes the use of landlord discretion.”

The judges ruling is effective immediately. Landlords are no longer required to comply with the FIT requirements that went into effect on July 1, 2017.
