April 28, 2008 6:45:52 AM PDT
A tough new ordinance that could force many registered sex offenders out of Long Beach is set to take effect Monday.The ordinance stops most landlords from renting units to anyone registered as a sex offender under Jessica's law, and it also draws a 2,000-foot buffer around schools, parks, daycare centers and beaches.

A lawsuit is being prepared challenging the ordinance, and attorneys are expected to formally ask the city council to rescind it.
