Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Property — landlord-tenant — local ordinances
This is an appeal and cross-appeal from a circuit court judgment resolving a landlord-tenant dispute between landlord Betty Thompson and tenant Franella Ngaboh-Smart. The dispute arose after Thompson withheld Ngaboh-Smart’s security deposit in September 2011. The appeal and cross-appeal raise several issues, including whether a statute enacted in December 2011 applies retroactively to bar Ngaboh-Smart from making claims based on a local security deposit ordinance. I affirm the circuit court with respect to all issues. This opinion will not be published.
