My landlord filed an unlawful detainer suit against me about four weeks ago. An aside, but an important one: the suit is retaliatory for complaints I made to the housing department. The landlord demanded I withdraw the complaints or he would sue for eviction.
OK, back to where we were: He has not set the case for trial. I called him to ask when he was going to set the case for trial and he said he would not set the case for trial-that he intended to destroy my credit by having the (unheard) unlawful detainer case on my record. He then repeated his demand: withdraw the complaints and he would drop the case.
Assuming 60 days pass and the UD becomes public record, can I move to have it expunged after a judge issues an OSC and dismisses the charges? How would I do this?
(Cont'd in comments)I've done a bit of research and discovered the landlord was half-right about the credit threat: The unheard (or dismissed) UD case would not affect my credit, but will affect my future ability to rent--landlords do not want potential tenants with past UD actions of any type.
