Landlords Ask Federal Judge to Block Biden CDC’s New Eviction Moratorium

HeadlineAug 05, 2021

Landlords in Georgia and Alabama have asked a federal judge to block the Biden administration’s new two-month moratorium on evictions. The new CDC moratorium covers areas of the United States where there is “substantial” or “high” spread of the coronavirus. The Alabama and Georgia chapters of the National Association of Realtors filed their motion with U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich, a Trump appointee who ruled in favor of landlords in May. We’ll have more on the story after headlines with Congressmember Ilhan Omar.
