CDC’s eviction moratorium: Supreme Court set to rule on constitutionality of extension

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to rule any day whether the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) eviction moratorium extension is constitutional.

With millions of Americans struggling to pay rent, the CDC is touting the moratorium that is in effect through Oct. 3. The goal is to keep people off the street during the coronavirus pandemic.

In some cases, mom-and-pop landlords with one or two tenants say not being able to evict is emotionally and financially paralyzing.

“There’s a lot of us out there that just need to reclaim our homes for our own personal reasons,” landlord Rosanna Morey told Fox News.

Morey is fighting an aggressive form of blood cancer and tells Fox News she decided not to renew her tenant’s lease in June 2020. Morey and her tenant live in different sections of her Long Island home in New York. She wants her tenant out so family can move in.

“This is not a second-income home. This is not a property that we have that we’re making all this money,” she said. – READ MORE
