Supreme Court Allows Eviction Moratorium to Remain in Place

Updated: Jul 1


What Happened:

  • On Tuesday, a divided Supreme Court voted to deny a request to end the CDC’s eviction moratorium.

  • The final vote was 5-4 in favor of maintaining the moratorium with Justices Gorsuch, Alito, Barrett and Thomas voting against.

  • The moratorium, which is currently set to expire on July 31, prevents landlords from evicting certain tenants who are unable to pay rent during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Just last week, the CDC announced an extension of the eviction moratorium by 30 days until July 31st, saying that this should be the “final” extension.

  • Several dozen Congress members have written to President Biden and Walensky asking for an extension of the moratorium saying that ending the assistance too abruptly would disproportionately hurt low-income communities.

  • Landlords have long argued against the eviction moratorium and were behind the court challenge saying that the focus should be on distribution of rental assistance funds instead.
