Land Use, Section 1983, and Civil Procedure

I'm something of a wonk as to land use cases brought under Section 1983. Thus, I thought MANUFACTURED HOME V CITY OF SAN JOSE was very interesting. Here are the issues:

MHC appeals the district court’s dismissal of MHC’s complaint for various jurisdictional and res judicata problems. We affirm the district court’s decision on the basis of res judicata, untimeliness, failure to state a federal question, lack of supplemental jurisdiction, and California’s statute of limitations. Although it does not affect the outcome of this case, we reverse the district court’s holding on the Rooker-Feldman doctrine. We reverse and remand the matter of attorneys’ fees.
Who says tax lawyers get to have all the fun?
