The city of Aspen and the local housing authority have prevailed in a lawsuit levied by a property owner at Aspen Highlands who was attempting to lift the deed restrictions on 12 dorm units and return them to the free market.Ninth Judicial District Court Judge Gail Nichols ruled earlier this month against Ronald Myerstein, who owns 18 deed-restricted condominiums at the base of Highlands that were set aside for Aspen Skiing Co. employees during the winter and Aspen Music Festival and School students during the summer.Through his Aspen attorney, Herb Klein, Myerstein filed the suit in the spring of 2008, arguing that the deed restrictions placed on the units were unenforceable and unconstitutional.
