Eviction moratorium headed to Supreme Court…

Sharing is Caring!

WASHINGTON – A group of real estate entities asked a federal court late Wednesday to block enforcement of the Biden administration’s new eviction moratorium, reopening a battle that appeared destined to put the legal challenge back before the Supreme Court

Arguing that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “caved to the political pressure” by creating what the administration called a “targeted,” 60-day freeze on evictions in counties with a high spread of COVID-19, the groups asked the district court in Washington, D.C., to immediately block the new moratorium.

“A majority of the Supreme Court made clear that the eviction moratorium exceeds the CDC’s statutory authority and could not be extended beyond July 31,” the Alabama Association of Realtors and other groups said in court papers. “The Supreme Court’s ruling was hardly ambiguous. Indeed, the White House clearly acknowledged that the Supreme Court had ruled that the CDC lacked authority to extend the moratorium.”
