Evictions (Forcible Entry Detainer (FED))

A Forcible Entry and Detainer Action (FED) is the formal name for the eviction hearing that takes place in District court.

Mediation is also available in eviction actions, which are called Forcible Entry and Detainer cases. A mediator may be at the courthouse when parties come to court on the day of the hearing, or mediation can be requested in advance. If you would like to request mediation, please contact the Clerk of Court to determine if a mediator will be present or can be arranged on the hearing date. Mediation will take place at the courthouse.
