PHOENIX — A state appeals court has rejected a constitutional challenge to
an Arizona law that bars enforcement of covenants and other property
restrictions that prohibit posting of “for sale” signs.
The Court of Appeals decision upholds a Coconino County judge’s ruling that a
Flagstaff master-planned community couldn’t prohibit the owners of a lot from
posting it for sale.
The community’s association had argued that the law enacted in 2009 violated
constitutional protections for contracts.
The Court of Appeals said the law doesn’t significantly trample on the
expectations of those involved in the case.
