Under new legislation, Oregon is considering enabling homeless individuals to sue those who try to move them for $1,000.
Oregon is considering legislation that would allow homeless people to sue anyone who tries to move them for $1,000. The proposed law aims to address the issue of homelessness in the state. If passed, the law would give homeless individuals the right to sue anyone who attempts to remove them from their outdoor location without providing an alternative housing option. Critics of the bill argue that it could discourage efforts to clean up public spaces and that it is not a long-term solution to the homelessness crisis. Supporters, however, believe that it could help protect the rights of homeless individuals and provide some level of legal recourse. The bill is currently being considered by the Oregon state legislature.
