Interlocutory Appeals In Forcible Entry And Detainer

Concerning appeals of orders relating to restitution of premises under forcible entry and detainer.
Session:
2020 Regular Session
Subject:
Courts & Judicial
Bill Summary

Under eviction law, a court may enter an order on the issue of restitution of the premises without determining other claims raised in the case. Under current law, it is unclear whether an appellate court can hear an interlocutory appeal of just the order on restitution of the premises. The bill clarifies that appellate courts have jurisdiction to hear the interlocutory appeals. The bill also clarifies that if a tenant is appealing the order, the tenant must continue to pay rent due during the appeal.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
