300 Families Duck Hotel Evictions

(Springfield, MA) — Springfield Housing Court Judge Robert Fields has halted the evictions of three-hundred families from their hotel rooms. The homeless families had been kicked out of the emergency shelter program because they violated house rules more than once. By contrast, families in traditional shelters are allowed to break the rules six times. Judge Field’s injunction effectively makes the eviction policies consistent. The rules in question have to do with cleanliness, noise, overnight guests, and courtesy to the hotel staff.
