Day 1 of the Centers for Disease Control-declared national moratorium on evictions and landlords are already defying it.   A Houston woman says she gave her landlord the required affidavit that she meets the criteria and still received a notice to vacate. Lone Star Legal Aid attorney Juan Santamaria says it’s important that renters have proof they gave their landlords the signed CDC affidavit in case they end up in court.
