Professor Mead and Marissa Pappas Publish Op-Ed in The New York Times

Professor Joseph Mead and Marissa Pappas, a student in the College of Urban Affairs, recently published an op-ed in The New York Times entitled “When Calling 911 Makes you a ‘Nuisance’ and Gets You Evicted.”  The op-ed describes some of their work into local nuisance laws, which often results in the eviction of the tenant who herself reported the nuisance (such as a 911 call to report a domestic violence incident).  Several local media outlets have also reported on Professor Mead’s and Ms. Pappas’ research and work on this issue of public nuisance laws (see here, here, here, here, here, and here).
