Trial continued over Colorado Easter decor eviction
BOULDER, Colo. – A trial in a dispute between a landlord in Boulder and a woman who says she was evicted over edible Easter decorations displayed on her door for two weeks after the holiday has been continued.
The trial is now scheduled for June.
Carol Burdick says her landlord unjustly told her to remove a display of Easter stickers, plastic grass, and Peeps marshmallow candies from her door shortly after Easter last year.
After Burdick refused, the landlord removed the decorations and said Burdick was in violation of her lease, which says balconies, patios and other areas must be kept “in a clean sanitary condition.”
Burdick then stopped paying rent. She was evicted in May.
AIMCO is suing her for more than $2,000 in back rent.
