When exactly does an eviction occur according to the Strasbourg Court? In Jansons v Latvia (application no. 1434/14), this question lurks behind the majority’s reasoning and the dissenting opinion of Judge O’Leary. This case is one of the “verticalized” cases brought before the Court, concerning, in essence, a private law dispute between the individual applicant and a private company in the context of a contested tenancy. In this post, we will analyse the case by focusing on the importance of framing a case in different ways as observed in the majority’s reasoning and the dissenting opinion, and on the meaning of eviction.
