Minnesota attorney general's office fielded 400 complaints since eviction proceedings stopped


Glen Stubbe – Star Tribune

In an interview, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said he was "a little shocked" that his office had received that many complaints of tenants being "under threat to be tossed out of their homes at a moment when it was least healthy for them."

One landlord tried to kick a family with a 4-year-old girl out of their home over unpaid rent. A mobile home resident could not flush his toilet because the landlord cut his water off. Another landlord refused to supply the propane needed to heat his tenant's home in March and April.

Those were among the most serious of the more than 400 tenant complaints the Minnesota Attorney General's Office has fielded since the state's eviction moratorium went into effect in March.
