My question involves a security deposit in the State of: CA
I'm suing my LL for (1) not providing a refund of the security deposit within 21 days (2) never providing an itemized list of charges or receipts (3) attempting to withhold money for "normal wear and tear" items like painting and replacing carpet when I had lived in the place for eight years.
There was a CA supreme court decision a while back that said that tenants who don't receive any refund within 21 days are entitled to get the entire amount back. Can someone help me find the text of that decision? I know there are searchable databases but I don't know how to find and use them.
