A great TV show back in the day, remembered by those of us with a few years under our belts. The term family also comes up now in housing law. Minnesota has a moratorium on all residential evictions. Recently, an exception was made to the moratorium which allows a landlord to remove a tenant, by eviction if needed, to allow a family member of the landlord to move in. The rub, what is a family member?, the term is not defined in the law. Most dictionaries seem to define a family member as any relative, not just someone in your immediate family. Unlike laws passed by the legislature and signed by the governor, which have alot of history behind them, and have often been considered by courts in the past, recent executive orders have virtually no history behind them.
If you are a landlord, or tenant involved in an eviction where family of the landlord is looking to move in, you could be making legal history.
