Officers interviewed two motel residents who called 911; they said they did not want to leave their homes. Alyssa Pointer for Business InsiderIn Georgia, an eviction requires a court order, but the law doesn't explicitly make lockouts illegal. In this case, an officer classified the incident as a "crime against property" — a crime committed by the residents themselves. In unincorporated Clark County, where the property is located, operating a short-term rental without a license is illegal. Matthew Main is an attorney who has represented residents in similarly precarious housing situations in New York City, where state law also grants residents tenants' rights after 30 days.

A handful of states, including Texas and Nevada, have set up dedicated systems designed to restore tenants to their homes after an illegal lockout. She and her family still don't have a new apartment, she said, and the eviction cases on her record don't help. BI reviewed two years' worth of lockout cases from the department and found city lawyers routinely dismissed tickets, often without documenting why. Bridget Bennett for Business InsiderThat afternoon, Brown had three cases on his docket in which tenants were alleging they'd been illegally locked out and dozens of cases in which landlords were seeking formal evictions. In 2022, Miami-Dade County passed a tenant's bill of rights that underlines the illegality of lockouts and limits a landlord's ability to harass tenants.

REUTERS/Alyssa Pointer/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsNEW YORK, Nov 14 (Reuters) - A New York trial judge has narrowed Warner Bros Discovery's lawsuit against Paramount Global (PARA.O) over the rights to stream "South Park," the animated comedy featuring foul-mouthed children. She also dismissed a claim that Paramount failed to act in good faith, because that claim duplicated Warner's breach of contract claim. Warner sued in February, saying Paramount breached the agreement by providing only 14 new episodes, and diverted other new "South Park" content to its Paramount+ streaming service under a $900 million agreement with Parker and Stone. "South Park" was launched in August 1997 on Comedy Central, owned by Paramount. The case is WarnerMedia Direct LLC v Paramount Global et al, New York State Supreme Court, New York County, No.

Warner Bros Discovery (WBD.O) and Paramount Global (PARA.O) gained 3% each, Netflix (NFLX.O) rose marginally, while Walt Disney (DIS.N) jumped 4%, as it also benefited from strong earnings and a plan to cut more costs. The writers, who had gone on strike before the actors in spring, returned to work in late September, but most productions remained halted as the actors were on picket lines. "Its certainly a very encouraging sign the chasm that opened up between actors, writers and studios can finally be closed and work begin in earnest on re-starting productions," said Susannah Streeter, head of money and markets at Hargreaves Lansdown. Streeter warned that "it's going to take considerable time before new movies, in particular, will appear on screens given the lengthy post-production process."

Though she had been baptized a Catholic in infancy, she was never raised in that or any other faith. She had experimented with New Age beliefs and Zen Buddhist meditation, but hadn’t found a spiritual home. Her new encounter with Christianity eventually led her to an Eastern Orthodox liturgy.
