The eviction moratorium enacted at the end of April was scheduled to run until August 18, 2020 unless the Governor extends it, and unless new legislation is enacted that worsens the situation. Even if the moratorium ends as planned, the courts will be different: virtual hearings, long backlogs, and the possibility of further legislation that could change the way we operate. We will try to answer all of the following questions:
- When will the moratorium end?
- What day exactly can I actually serve?
- Are notices served before the moratorium still good? Summons?
- Are executions from before still good?
- What is the case backlog?
- How long will it take the courts to process the backlog?
- What's the earliest jury trial date?
- Are the courts sitting more frequently? Will cases be over zoom or telephone?
- What alternatives do I have besides court?
Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the current policy framework and timelines, and with better ideas to plan for an end to the eviction moratorium.
