Professor and Director of the Stanford Community Law Clinic Juliet M. Brodies is quoted in Palo Alto Online in an article about the ongoing dispute between 136 Page Mill tenants and Page Mill Properties:

After almost a year of litigation, most of which the city has lost, the East Palo Alto City Council passed a resolution Tuesday night that was critical of Page Mill Properties use of a public employee pension fund to finance the purchases of apartment buildings in the city.

The resolution cited the "predatory real estate practices which result in pain and hardship to our residents."

...

"What we're seeing is a frontal attack on rent control in the city," Juliet Brodie, director of the Stanford Community Clinic, said. She represents 136 Page Mill tenants who have filed a class action lawsuit against Page Mill.
