No New Posts Evicted but refused to leave: tenants sued w/ Unlawful Detainer suits in SF Bay Area

This board provides names of San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and other San Francisco Bay Area renters who, when given an eviction notice by their landlord, refused to leave as legally required, necessitating an Unlawful Detainer lawsuit and/or great expense on the property owner's part to remove them from the premises.

It would be great to have a national database of names of renters who squatted and refused to leave after given an eviction notice, necessitating a UD suit, but that's a lot of work. I'm beginning with some from SF where records are simple to search.

Information on these renters was obtained from the San Francisco Superior Court case records.
