NAA Statement on U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Ruling on CDC Order
ARLINGTON, VA | May 5, 2021 – Statement from Bob Pinnegar, President & CEO of the National Apartment Association on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruling on the CDC’s Eviction Order:
The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich further demonstrates the unlawful nature of this policy and reinforces just how far the CDC overstepped their authority – the CDC does not have the authority to dictate operations of state courts. Eviction moratoriums are dangerous, detrimental policy that harm housing affordability, housing providers and our residents. The government must end enforcement of the CDC order and begin communications now to stakeholders, including judges, to prepare them for its ending.
