Supreme Court Blocks Biden Administration’s Eviction Moratorium

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ended the pandemic-related federal moratorium on residential evictions imposed by President Joe Biden’s administration in a challenge to the policy brought by a coalition of landlords and real estate trade groups. The justices, who in June had left in place a prior ban that expired at the end of July, granted a request by the challengers to lift the moratorium by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that was to have run until Oct. 3.

A little scary that this wasn’t a 9-0 vote, but nonetheless a big victory if you’re a renter or a landlord.
