NEW YORK — A new batch of federal eviction papers that was due to be delivered to a Florida home owner on Friday are expected to be sent to the wrong address, a federal judge said Wednesday.
The documents will be sent instead to a house on the wrong side of the country, said U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith in a hearing.
The U.A.E. sued the government last week to get documents for its residents in the Palm Beach area, including a new draft of the Affordable Care Act that was expected to take effect Feb. 1.
The judge rejected the government’s argument that the documents were not delivered to the right address because they were not filed in the wrong county, as required by the federal court order.
Goldsmith, a former federal prosecutor, also ruled that a second eviction notice sent to a wrong address was not sufficient because the other notice was not addressed to the correct address.
The court issued a stay on the eviction orders for the two notices, which could be appealed.
