Abstract Arkansas is the only state that criminalizes failure to pay rent. Our lawsuit aims to end this draconian law (known as the failure to vacate statute, or Ark. Code ยง18-16-101), claiming the scales of justice are tipped too far in favor of landlords looking for a cheap workaround from tenant protections, all at the expense of tenants struggling to afford rent.
