Judge views evictions ban as illegal, but refuses to block it

A federal judge is refusing a request from landlords to put the Biden administration’s new eviction moratorium on hold. The U-S District judge is making clear she thinks the CDC’s temporary ban on evictions is illegal. But Dabney Friedrich says her “hands are tied” by an appellate court ruling.  Alabama landlords who are challenging the moratorium are likely to appeal. President Joe Biden has acknowledged there were questions about its legality, but said he hoped the moratorium would buy time to distribute more rental assistance that has already been approved.
