Thursday evening, the Supreme Court block the CDC from enforcing a federal moratorium that would pause evictions on renters during the Covid pandemic.

Biden’s administration tried to continue the moratorium after it expired in July. The moratorium, which was enacted in 2020 during the pandemic, allowed renters who could not afford to pay rent, to continue to live in their home without being evicted.

The supreme court voted 6-3 to block the action. Justices Elaina Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor voting in favor of the moratorium.

The current moratorium, which took effect in August, was set to expire in October. It was imposed with much backlash, as landlords around the country pushed back against the CDC and their authority.

There are some states – Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico and California – that have their own eviction moratoriums that are not affected by the court’s ruling.
