Due to the COVID-19 pandemic beginning in late 2019, the United States courts have since been facing a large delay in conducting their functions. In 2020, the Franklin County Court was facing an influx of eviction cases and created a new law that would make it possible for you to get rid of your eviction record.
Municipal Court Clerk Lori Tyack said, “We just want to make sure housing is available, and maybe lessen the number of hoops that people have to jump through…a lot of times, people just look to see if there are any records when they do a search. They don’t necessarily open it to see how it was settled."
In addition, the Municipal Court has also been making an effort to address evictions by allowing the removal of online access, even if it is under three years old.
