Description

Landlord and tenant; remedy for unlawful ouster; ex parte issuance of order to recover possession. Provides that, upon receipt of a petition for an order to recover possession or restore essential services alleging a tenant's unlawful ouster from the rental premises and a finding that the petitioner has attempted to provide the landlord with actual notice of the hearing on the petition, the judge of the general district court may issue such order ex parte upon a finding of good cause to do so. The bill further provides that an ex parte order shall be a preliminary order that specifies a date for a full hearing on the merits of the petition, to be held within five days of the issuance of the ex parte order.
