In the News
“Families are being devastated by illegal evictions in Arizona. It’s a nightmare for too many,” said Pamela Bridge, director of advocacy and litigation at the Arizona nonprofit Community Legal Services.
“These are evictions that shouldn’t be happening. The CARES Act is clear that evictions for not paying rent shouldn’t have happened.”
“Even with the CDC order in place, Pam Bridge, director of litigation and advocacy with Community Legal Services, expects to see more evictions in Arizona with the expiration of the state order.”
” ‘The additional rental aid could help the state’s thousands of renters struggling to keep their homes, but many now also need to fill out additional forms to qualify for the federal eviction moratorium,” said Pamela Bridge, Community Legal Services director of litigation and advocacy.”
“If you’re a renter having financial trouble trying to stay in your home, it may have just gotten harder.
” ‘The rules have changed again for everyone,’ says attorney Pam Bridge with non-profit Community Legal Services.”

“The Supreme Court’s decision ‘is important for tenants who don’t qualify for the CDC Order,’ said Pamela Bridge, director of advocacy and litigation at the Arizona nonprofit Community Legal Services. ‘They (those renters) can remain in their homes if they qualify for the governor’s order through the end of October.’ ”
