Landmark Land Case In IN

A northwestern Indiana landlord wants the U.S. Supreme Court to wade into his dispute with the city of Hammond and overturn a city order directing him to remove five apartments that he’s leased to tenants in what was once a single-family home. Jose Andrade, who argues that Hammond’s order violates his constitutional rights, has filed a petition for review with the nation’s highest court. He contends that Hammond officials cannot require the home, which was built in 1927 and subsequently converted to apartments, to adhere to the city’s building code since it only was adopted in 1981.
