Federal Ban on Evictions 

The United States Supreme Court has lifted the Biden administration’s federal ban on evictions, siding with landlords who say the government cannot force them to allow people to live on their land rent-free. Three liberal justices dissented, but a majority ruled that only Congress could impose an eviction moratorium. Joe Biden’s attempt to use the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to enact such a moratorium was unconstitutional.

“The moratorium has put  millions of landlords across the country at risk of irreparable harm by depriving them of rent payments with no guarantee of eventual recovery,” the Supreme Court ruled on August 26. “Many landlords have modest means. And preventing them from evicting tenants who breach their leases intrudes on one of the most fundamental elements of property ownership—the right to exclude.”
