Supreme Court Blocks Eviction Moratorium. This week we received news that the Supreme Court has blocked the CDC from enforcing a moratorium on evictions at the federal level. This decision is seen as a defeat to the Biden administration’s efforts to continue the moratorium in spite of the court’s previous statements that the government lacked proper legal authority to do so. The court’s conservative majority has stated the eviction ban is beyond the CDC’s means in regards to combat Covid and other communicable diseases. This decision was made by the court on the 26th of August.
