DC eviction filing ban struck


In a case argued by Battino & Sokolow attorneys Aaron Sokolow and Vivianette Velazquez, the DC Superior Court has struck DC’s eviction filing ban as unconstitutional. This has a somewhat limited applicability because bans still exist on issuing many notices. However, this ruling is helpful to DC landlords. A story from the Washington Post, in which Aaron Sokolow was quoted, can be found here. The Court Order can be read here.
