On Friday, the city announced a settlement with the Legal Aid Society over the right-to-shelter law.

The agreement allows the city to limit shelter stays for some adult migrants for 30 days. Most migrants will not have a chance to reapply.

While some exceptions will be made, this settlement relieves the city of the responsibility of housing all adult migrants indefinitely during this emergency.

Meanwhile, the Legal Aid Society, which was part of the original lawsuit that brought about the city’s right-to-shelter policy decades ago, emphasized that the deal only applies during this crisis.

Josh Goldfein, a staff attorney with the Legal Aid Society’s Civil Practice, joined NY1 political anchor Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Monday to discuss more.

He’s been at the forefront of the effort to defend the law.
