"SF landlord Anna Kihagi faces new court action by city attorney" San Francisco Chronicle, December 3, 2015
"Attorney Nancy Conway, who has been working with a family that has lived on Filbert Street for more than 40 years and recently won an eviction case against Kihagi, said the landlord’s willingness to “color outside the lines” gives her a competitive advantage in an overheated marketplace where dozens of investors compete for every multiunit property."

"At this point, you’re probably wondering how in the hell all this could happen, and keep happening, without anyone going to jail. The answer is simple: The legal consequences of actions like those detailed in Bradstreet’s ruling are minimal. Fraudulent evictions are only a misdemeanor. Misdemeanors do carry a potential prison term of a year, but landlords like Kihagi rarely serve time. Veteran attorney Nancy Conway, who is representing several of Kihagi’s tenants, notes that any landlord convicted of violating the city’s Rent Ordinance can face criminal penalties. But the last landlord she can recall going to jail in such a case is George Hoffberg, who in 1999 was sentenced to 30 days for a series of eviction schemes."
