Court rejects request to re-hear Fremont case

US COURT-webFREMONT, Neb.: The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected a request to re-hear a case challenging a Fremont ordinance requiring people to prove they’re in the country legally before they can rent an apartment.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports the federal court denied the petition for the full court to rehear the case.
Challengers have 90 days to petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case.

The case challenged a 2010 ordinance approved by Fremont voters requiring potential renters to pay a $5 fee for an occupancy license and show proof of being in the country legally.

Attorneys representing several groups challenged the law in federal court. A three-judge panel upheld the ordinance in June and reversed a judge’s ruling that parts of the law violated federal law. -AP
