Ashleigh Leitch Presents at American Association of Code Enforcement Annual Conference
The American Association of Code Enforcement (AACE) is a national non-profit representing housing, property maintenance and zoning officials in the United States. AACE’s education, training and certification programs allow code officers to enforce the housing, property maintenance and zoning ordinances intended to provide minimum standards for the protection of the public’s health, safety and welfare.
On October 23, 2019, Ashleigh Leitch presented to the AACE on the City of Golden Valley v. Wiebesick. This case was successfully argued by Ashleigh before the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2017. The Minnesota Supreme Court affirmed the City’s position regarding petitions for administrative search warrants to inspect rental housing for compliance with health and safety codes. This decision was a matter of first impression under the Minnesota Constitution and confirms the City’s previous win before the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
Opinion: City of Golden Valley v. Wiebesick
