With many states resuming pre-COVID-19 economic activity and re-opening judicial facilities after often extended docket freezes, and with the federal CARES Act eviction moratorium set to expire on July 25, courts throughout the country will soon be facing an unprecedented deluge of evictions. For many tenants, appearing and defending against an eviction during pandemic conditions is unsafe, impractical, or altogether impossible. This presentation will discuss issues of due process and fundamental fairness in judicial eviction proceedings during COVID-19, and related arguments that lawyers may advance in defense of clients.
