On May 5, 2021, a federal judge overturned the national moratorium on evictions imposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency. In rendering the decision, the judge said the CDC exceeded its authority. The federal Department of Justice has filed an appeal and requested a stay to prevent the decision from going into effect.

The goal was to alleviate the economic and public health challenges . . .
