The CDC eviction moratorium is back on, at least for now.

U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich, who vacated the nationwide COVID-19 eviction moratorium last week, agreed to a stay of her order after the Justice Department appealed her ruling.

That ruling, handed down Wednesday, May 5, has no impact on California’s arguably more stringent eviction moratorium, which will remain in effect until June 30 unless extended. It also does not affect local eviction moratoria.

In last week’s ruling, Friedrich, a judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, concluded that the CDC lacked the authority to impose a nationwide eviction moratorium.

Federal judges in Ohio and Texas have also ruled against the CDC order but stopped short of vacating the order.
