Hillview Associates v. Bloomquist
Iowa Supreme Court
440 N.W.2d 867 (Iowa 1989)
A group of tenants (defendant) at a trailer park owned by Hillview Associates (Hillview) (plaintiffs) began to meet about concerns over the condition of the park. Soon after these initial meetings, they met with the management of Hillview to lodge their complaints and subsequently the relationship between the parties began to erode. Finally, at a second meeting between the tenants and management, a shouting match ensued and the meeting ended with Davenport, one of the tenants, hitting the manager in the face. After this meeting, management served everyone present at the meeting with a notice of eviction. However, the tenants failed to vacate the trailer park. Hillview brought this suit seeking ejectment of the tenants.
