Here’s what happened…
Federal Judge Dabney Friedrich of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia rejected a major request from landlord groups to end the CDC’s new eviction moratorium.
According to CNBC, over 11 million Americans are still behind on their rent which prompted the CDC to place a new eviction ban which lasts until October 3rd.
Judge Friedrich said the “Court’s hands are tied.”
The landlord group is expected to appeal the decision.
“The Administration believes that CDC’s new moratorium is a proper use of its lawful authority to protect the public health,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated. “We are pleased that the district court left the moratorium in place, though we are aware that further proceedings in this case are likely.”
