J. Kyle Janecek - Newmeyer Dillion

Governor Gavin Newsom just passed an order that effectively creates an eviction freeze for residential tenants in California who are unable to pay rent as a result of changed finances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has taken the form of Executive Order N-37-20, which will remain in effect through May 31, 2020.

The Order raises a number of questions however, including when the Order applies, how it affects evictions, and whether it overrides local measures currently in effect.
