Supreme Court declines to stop federal moratorium on evictions
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to end the federal government’s temporary ban on evictions, which now is scheduled to expire in July.
The hight court ruled 5-4. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote that he thought the ban was illegal, but he noted that it is scheduled to expire soon.
The moratorium on evictions was put in place due to the financial hardship of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a nationwide eviction moratorium last year due to the pandemic.
