Judge To Decide Whether Victims Will be Evicted

Puerto Rican hurricane evacuees  staying in hotels in Western Massachusetts and elsewhere in the U.S. are  getting more time to stay in their temporary homes.  

A federal judge in  Springfield  granted a temporary injunction over the weekend stopping the Federal  Emergency Management Agency from ending its transitional assistance  housing program until midnight Tuesday. 

The move impacts about  17-hundred individuals. 

 FEMA says it is aware of the judge's ruling and  is working to notify hotels that its shelter program has been extended  to Thursday. 

Part of the issue centers around delays because families don't have the documentation they need.  Their lawyers say that is understandable considering what they have been through.
