Eviction Warrant Vacated in Nonpayment Proceeding
Facts: An owner sued to evict a Section 8 resident who failed to pay his portion of subsidized rent for two months. The court ruled for the owner based on the resident's default, but later reopened the case. The resident got a commitment from the local department of social services (DSS) to pay the unpaid rent. However, the owner wouldn't provide a W-9 form and proof of a tax identification number needed to complete the paperwork. The owner then obtained a second eviction warrant based on the resident's nonpayment.
