In a decision that can only be said to be a shock to legal scholars, the CDC extended their eviction moratorium.
Like all other things over the past 18 months, this means that we have to change procedures again. For us to be able to file evictions for clients, we need a new form completed. This form is similar to what we sent out last week, but this form inquires whether the client has received a CDC declaration, which is now relevant again due to the extension.
***Management companies – make sure you send this form out to all of your properties to avoid delays in their evictions***
CHALLENGE TO NEW CDC MORATORIUM & NEW PODCAST
Two more important things:
FIRST, the plaintiffs that previously went to the Supreme Court have now filed an emergency motion to vacate the stay and stop the CDC moratorium. The government has been ordered to respond. The plaintiffs filed the motion with the same district court judge that originally ruled that the CDC was unconstitutional. That court ruled that it was unconstitutional but said the moratorium could be reviewed while the case was on appeal. Hopefully now, that judge will realize that she was right and the her ruling should be enforced immediately. If successful, this could strike down the CDC order across the country. We will keep you updated.
Their brief is well written and points out the absurdity of the CDC entering a new order after the Supreme Court’s previous ruling. It is summed up in the sentence: “But on August 3, the CDC caved to the political pressure by extending the moratorium,
without providing any legal basis.”
SECOND, what would a significant change in the law be, without a new podcast? See below for the the newest Zona Law Podcast with attorneys Mark Zinman and Scott Baluha. They give their honest reaction and analysis of the extension. They also give insight on the two days when the CDC expired.
