LOS ANGELES--City Attorney Mike Feuer has announced that the City of Los Angeles won an important victory today when U.S. District Court Judge Dean Pregerson denied the Apartment Association of Los Angeles County’s motion for a preliminary injunction against the City’s protections for renters during the coronavirus pandemic.


"This was a vital victory, because our eviction moratorium is preventing thousands of tenants from losing their homes in the midst of the pandemic," said Feuer. "Looking ahead, I renew my call for our federal government to provide long-awaited aid to COVID-affected tenants, so they can pay their landlords and remain housed while our nation's jobs market recovers."
