A Vietnam veteran from Bridgeport has avoided eviction after missing a virtual court hearing.
Malcolm Yank was joined by State Sen. Dennis Bradley in the courtroom.
Officials say a judge granted the eviction in spite of the moratorium because Yank had missed his virtual court hearing, saying he didn’t know how to appear online.
Bradley is working with city councilwoman Jeanette Herron to get the situation figured out.
“Malcolm Yank, luckily, through the help of News 12 and our office, we were able to extend his stay at the residence where he’s been for over 20 years,” Bradley says. “If we recall, there was an immediate order of eviction where he had to be immediately brought out within one week, but now he has over a two month stay.”
The senator says he will be back in court to try and get Yank more time.
He says he is also working on a long-term housing solution for the 77-year-old.
