Texas Federal Judge Rules Eviction Moratorium Is Unconstitutional
So why is the moratorium still in effect?
On Feb. 25, an Eastern District of Texas federal judge ruled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) national eviction moratorium is unconstitutional. The moratorium was implemented by the CDC in September 2020 and was recently extended by the current CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, until March 31, 2021. Even with the decision, the eviction moratorium remains in effect, bringing additional confusion to renters and owners alike on the issue.
