The Department of Justice is appealing a ruling by a federal judge in Texas that puts millions of U.S. residents at risk of eviction. Last week, U.S. District Judge John Barker — a Trump appointee — ruled that an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention temporarily ending evictions during the pandemic is unconstitutional. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says more than 2 million people are more than three months behind on rent and could face eviction if — and when — the moratorium is lifted.
