Federal Renter Eviction Moratorium Struck Down

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., ruled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) overstepped its legal authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium, a ruling that could affect millions of struggling Americans. In a 20-page order, U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich vacated the CDC order, first put in place during the coronavirus pandemic under the Trump administration and now set to expire June 30.
