Before it’s here, it’s on the Bloomberg Terminal. The case is Alabama Association of Realtors v. HHS, 20-cv-03377-DLF, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Washington). LEARN MORE
The Alabama Association of Realtors, which sued to challenge the moratorium, claims landlords will lose $13.8 billion to $19 billion each month in unpaid rent as as a result of the CDC moratorium. In a May 5 ruling, the Trump-appointed judge found the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeded its authority by barring evictions across all rental properties. After Friedrich’s decision to knock down the ban, U.S. Justice Department lawyers said they’d appeal and push the judge to keep the protection in place for the time being.

“The court remains mindful that landlords across the country have incurred substantial economic hardships as a result of the CDC’s nationwide moratorium on evictions,” Friedrich wrote. “The longer the moratorium remains in effect, the more these hardships will be exacerbated. Even so, given the public health consequences cited by the CDC, a stay is warranted.” “To be sure, these figures are estimates, but they nonetheless demonstrate that lifting the national moratorium will ‘exacerbate the significant public health risks,”’ Friedrich said in a 10-page ruling.
