D.C. Court of Appeals Upholds Eviction Ban

Landlords hope to move the case to Supreme Court.

A three-judge panel of the District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals unanimously rejected another motion to halt the CDC’s eviction ban, this time filed by two chapters of the National Association of Realtors. On Friday, a few hours after receiving the decision, the group filed a motion to have the Supreme Court review the case, stating the appellate court had given in to “political pressure.”

“In light of the Executive Branch’s statement that its litigation efforts are designed to buy time to achieve its economic policy goals – and the fact that landlords are now subject to federal criminal penalties for exercising their property rights depending on where they do business – applicants respectfully ask this Court to issue relief as soon as possible,” the plaintiffs wrote in their Supreme Court brief.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the D.C. Court of Appeals as they do their best to honor the Constitution.
  • For the Supreme Court as they weigh how best to participate in this legal issue.
  • That the Biden Administration would hear and respond to these complaints with wisdom.
