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.

CNN —The Supreme Court ruled Friday in favor of an Oregon city that ticketed homeless people for sleeping outside, rejecting arguments that such “anti-camping” ordinances violate the Constitution’s ban on “cruel and unusual” punishment. The case centered on “anti-camping” ordinances in Grants Pass, Oregon, that were challenged by several residents experiencing homelessness. “For some people, sleeping outside is their only option.” The city, she said, “punishes them for being homeless. The ordinances barred people from sleeping in public with “bedding,” which can include sleeping bags or bundled-up clothing. In reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling, housing rights groups came out in full force to condemn the decision.

Read previewThe Supreme Court on Friday ruled that it's constitutional for local governments to make it illegal to sleep in public places, even when there isn't sufficient shelter space. The case — City of Grants Pass v. Johnson — is the most consequential the court has decided dealing with homelessness in decades. AdvertisementThe Supreme Court ruled that laws regulating sleeping in public places don't constitute cruel and unusual punishment. Homeless rights activists held a rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court on April 22, 2024, the day the court heard oral argument in City of Grants Pass, Oregon v. Johnson. An increasing number of cities and states across the country have passed laws — often anti-camping ordinances — similar to that in Grants Pass.

The Supreme Court will review a Ninth Circuit decision protecting unsheltered homelessness. AdvertisementThe Supreme Court earlier this month announced it would take up the most consequential case dealing with homelessness in decades. Gavin Newsom, have also asked the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling, arguing that it makes it difficult or impossible to address the homelessness crisis. Last year, a Maricopa County judge ordered Phoenix officials to clear the Zone. "Local officials can still cite, arrest, and prosecute people for any other violation of the law, including for all crimes against people and property."
