Zoning Sex Offender Out of House

After a registered sex offender moved into property owned by his mother, the city of Issaquah passed a zoning ordinance that limited registered sex offenders to non-residential areas, forcing him to move. Judge Linda Lau (King County Superior Court) upheld the ordinance last year. Issaquah sex offender law is upheld, Seattle P-I, 2/24/06.
Now he and his mother are challenging the ordinance as applied to them; the case will be heard on June 4. Challenge to Issaquah sex-offender law to be heard, Seattle Times, 3/29/07.

The ACLU of Washington's website includes a press release from when the case began (August 2005) and its brief in opposition to summary judgment (December 2005).
