Results of Tier 1 and Tier 2 events during residential eviction cases for non-payment of rent. A Tier 1 event is a mediation hearing that occurs after a landlord files an eviction case. If the parties can't reach an agreement in mediation, they proceed to Tier 2, where the case is decided in Civil Court. All data is compiled from the Trial Court's case tracking system, Masscourts, and is updated weekly.
