KC Tenants v. David M. Byrn

Location: Missouri
Status: Ongoing
Last Update: October 6, 2020

What's at Stake

On September 30, 2020, WRP and ACLU-MO filed a complaint for injunctive and declaratory relief in the Western District of Missouri on behalf of KC Tenants, a local grassroots organization that seeks to advance fair housing access to renters. The lawsuit challenges the Jackson County Circuit Court’s administrative order that purports to implement the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) nationwide eviction moratorium, but instead permits eviction cases to move forward in violation of it, putting hundreds of Missouri tenants at risk for eviction in violation of federal protections.
