Circuit Judge William Ager heard arguments on motions In the
3uit' brought by seven landlords against the rent strike yesterday, but
it will still be at least a week before he makes any decisions.
Ager will accept additional briefs on the case until next Friday.
Among the motions which Ager will be considering are the
notion by the defendants for dismissal, requests by the plaintiff for
;ummary judgment, and a motion to allow Student Government
Council to become a co-defendant.
The suit has been brought against 91 rent strikers by seven
andlords who charge that the ultimate goal of the rent strike is an
attack on the concept of private property. The suit seeks an In-
unction to halt the rent strike.
Besides the injunction the lan dlords are seeking $10,000 in indi-
'vidual ..damages, $30,000 in ex-
