Federal Judge Overturns National Eviction Ban

CNBC, May 5, 2021–Annie Nova
A federal judge on Wednesday struck down the national eviction moratorium, potentially leaving millions of Americans at risk of losing their homes. Housing advocates have said that the national ban is necessary to stave off an unprecedented displacement of Americans, which could worsen the coronavirus pandemic just as the country is turning a corner. Property owners have criticized the policy and say landlords can’t afford to continue housing people for free.
