Developing the Case: Affirmative Litigation vs. Eviction Defense [01:09:43]

Bringing an affirmative case is very different from defending a case.  By comparing and contrasting the differences between bringing an affirmative case on behalf of a plaintiff and defending an eviction lawsuit against a tenant, two important and often complementary areas of housing law, this session will provide a basic overview of the differences between prosecuting and defending a lawsuit.  This session will also touch on early procedural considerations related to filing an affirmative lawsuit, including common standing issues, the decision whether to file in state or federal court, and whether to file for preliminary relief, including TROs and Preliminary Injunctions.

Lorraine A. López, Shayla R. Myers
