The tenant's association sued the state in 1993

Two years after the housing association's comprehensive restoration project ended in 1991 the Swedish Parliament changed the conditions for the entire financing by increasing the so-called "guaranteed interest" on mortgages, which led to a sharp increase in costs. The Parliament's decision meant that several hundred condominium associations and several thousand private property owners went bankrupt.

The association therefore sued the state in the Market Court (win 5-0) and subsequently civil law in District Court and Court of Appeal (loss in both) and also requested review in Supreme Court, which was denied.
