A federal judge has denied CAA’s request to allow for an immediate appeal of an unfavorable ruling issued in November in its lawsuit challenging the Alameda County eviction moratorium.

CAA and plaintiffs in the Williams v. County of Alameda companion case had argued that certifying the case for immediate appeal would be more efficient for both the court and the parties involved because it would allow for controlling issues of legal interpretation over which there is substantial disagreement to be resolved. The judge tentatively agreed with CAA’s argument at a Feb. 9 hearing but deferred a final decision so she could consider recent developments in other cases in the federal appellate courts.
