PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A decision could be made this week about the removal of homeless encampments in Philadelphia. Attorneys on both sides will have virtual oral arguments in district court on Monday. They are scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
Last week, a federal judge listened to testimony from encampment dwellers and the city. The issue at hand is the availability of low-income housing.
The city is offering services and short-term hotel stays, but people at the camp say they want better long-term affordable housing options.
The judge is expected to make a decision by Wednesday.
