WEBCAST HCBA CLE - Minnesota Landlord-Tenant Anti-Retaliation Law after Central Housing Associates v. Olson

Event Description

Webcast CLE Program

Click here to register for the in-person version of this program.

In Central Housing Associates v. Olson, 929 N.W.2d 398 (Minn. 2019) the Minnesota Supreme Court promulgated a new, common-law retaliation defense residential tenants can assert in an Eviction Action (“UD”) while also slightly limiting the reach of Minn. Stat. § 504B.441. This CLE seminar, by one of Mr. Olson’s attorneys, will review that case as well as other retaliation defenses – First Amendment defenses, reprisal defenses under the FHA & the MHRA, defense under Minn. Stat. § 504B.205, and defenses under Minn. Stat. § 504B.285, plus a city ordinance -- along with associated case law. The CLE will conclude with suggestions, including draft pleadings, for tenant-initiated lawsuits to stop retaliatory evictions. Materials will include a PowerPoint, copies of statutes, the draft pleadings, and some hard-to-find court documents underlying Cloverdale Foods v. Pioneer Snacks, 580 N.W.2d 46.

Remote instructions (along with materials) will be emailed to you the day prior to the program.
