Eviction Defense Coalition members appear in Troy City Court

Four members of the Eviction Defense Coaltion were in Troy City Court on Monday facing trespassing charges related to a protest in October. Luz, Emily, Annie, and Shaqueena were arrested at an eviction defense action where a tenant of lawyer Michael Ginsberg was evicted by having her locks changed. The tenant, who’s name is Chastity, is a single Black mother with a 3 year old son. She has filed charges against Mr. Ginsberg for unlawful eviction, but the eviction defense coaltion says the judge has been sitting on her case for two weeks. In this segment, you will here Mark Mischler, the lawyer who is representing the eviction protestors, followed by legal observer Caroline Nagy, and then you will here Damaris Miller.
