  • Chapter 441 (Immediate Possession Because of Drugs or Violence)
  • Chapter 534 (Unlawful Detainer)
  • Chapter 535 (Rent and Possession)


Judgments that grant relief in these cases are required to contain certain language.  The required language is contained in Administrative Order 2009-134.  There is information related to the processing of these cases that is important for parties and their attorneys to be familiar with.
