, Temporary Ban on Residential Evictions, Abrahams Kaslow & Cassman LLP | Attorneys at Law

On March 25, 2020, Governor Ricketts issued an Executive Order temporarily prohibiting residential eviction hearings.  No eviction hearings will take place until after May 31, 2020 if a tenant can demonstrate they (a) have suffered a loss of income resulting from COVID-19, or (b)l missed work to care for a relative or child due to school and childcare closures.  Landlords are not permitted to evict a tenant on the basis that any resident of the property has a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.  This Executive Order does not change or effect a tenant’s obligation to pay rent.
