Unless there’s something I don’t know about – which is possible – Sheriff Honsal misspoke yesterday with regard to eviction filings.  According to the standing Judicial Council order no unlawful detainer filings may be filed until 90 days following the lifting of the shelter-in-place order, meaning most likely September.  It should be noted that there is significant pressure on the Judicial Council to modify that order.

However, the Judicial Council has no jurisdiction over writs which were obtained prior to the order.  If the Board of Supervisors allows, and the Sheriff changes his policy, those writs may be enforced.  But the Board of Supervisors has no say over what can be filed with the Courts.
