Last Thursday, the State of California sued the City of Huntington Beach for failing to follow its affordable housing mandates. A few hours later, Huntington Beach sued right back, beginning what looks to be a lengthy and costly battle over Orange County housing. In the past, Huntington Beach has just paid a fine for not building the mandated housing, but State Attorney General Rob Bonta is attempting to put an end to that practice.
