Today on Legalese, as part of my ongoing series “Ignorance Of The Law” where we laugh at the fact that ignorance of the law may not be an excuse for breaking the law, but it’s often an excuse for making an enforcing the law. Today we discuss the ignorance of Rent Control by looking at a recent John Oliver segment talking about the need for rent control and we look at a series of rent control laws passed in the Twin Cities that are considered to to be the strictest Rent Control Laws in the country.
