AB 2413 Law Enforcement and Emergency Service

This bill prohibits landlords from retaliating against victims or their households for contacting law enforcement or emergency assistance. Current law (in relation to an unlawful detainer) allows the victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking, or elder/dependent adult abuse to attach a documented copy of a restraining, protection order, or report by a peace officer. This law also allows the victim to provide a statement from a qualified 3rd party, such as a sexual assault counselor, domestic violence counselor, or a human trafficking caseworker, only if the documentation displays the letterhead of the office, hospital, institution, center, or organization.
