The Department of Justice plans to appeal a court decision that ruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s temporary eviction moratorium is unconstitutional.

Prosecutors filed a notice on Saturday, saying they plan to appeal the decision by U.S. District Judge J. Campbell Barker to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

The article goes on to state the following:

Bryan Boynton, acting assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Civil Division, said in a statement that the department “respectfully disagrees” with the ruling.

“The CDC’s eviction moratorium, which Congress extended last December, protects many renters who cannot make their monthly payments due to job loss or health care expenses. By preventing people from becoming homeless or having to move into more-crowded housing, the moratorium helps to slow the spread of COVID-19,” Boynton said.

Department of Justice Issues Statement Announcing Decision to Appeal Terkel v. CDC

Brian M. Boynton, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Civil Division, released the following statement:

“The CDC’s eviction moratorium, which Congress extended last December, protects many renters who cannot make their monthly payments due to job loss or health care expenses.  By preventing people from becoming homeless or having to move into more-crowded housing, the moratorium helps to slow the spread of COVID-19.   

The Department of Justice respectfully disagrees with the February 25 decision of the district court in Terkel v. CDC that the CDC’s eviction moratorium exceeds Congress’ powers under the Commerce Clause and the Necessary and Proper Clause, and the Department has appealed that decision. The decision, however, does not extend beyond the particular plaintiffs in that case, and it does not prohibit the application of the CDC’s eviction moratorium to other parties.  For other landlords who rent to covered persons, the CDC’s eviction moratorium remains in effect.”

  1. But… where’s the concern for all of the landlords? Small number of rentals landlords… apartment complexes landlords alike ALL have expenses, too. Has anyone given them protection from their mortgage payments, repairs and maintenance expenses, property tax expenses, their employee expenses, if any?
    This now year long hold on rent will ruin these businesses.

    Just saying, since I don’t see anyone talk about the domino effect. I don’t have any rentals, thank goodness.

    • My beef is that they gave alot of these people 600 dollars “extra” a week on unemployment! Wasn’t that done so people could pay rent with it! Yet they still did the moratorium! Their is no logic in anything they are doing! When are people going to learn The goverment NEVER gives anything for FREE!

  2. Moira, that’s exactly my question! The judge is absolutely right! It’s immoral fir CDC to say people don’t have to pay their rent! So what happens to the landlords when they can’t make their payments? If they go bankrupt, then the people have to move out anyway !! They gained nothing at all!! It’s disgustingly shallow minded not yo analyze consequences to their fullest extent.

  3. Congress right now doesn’t care about any law. They just seem to do whatever they want to ensure they get voted into office again.

  4. I have to laugh thinking about all the illegals pouring into the country so why are you worrying about renters being evicted. I’m sure the government can find places for them. My family went through months and months trying to evict through the court system. What a joke I might add. When this China virus hit all we were waiting for was waiting for a decision from of course a liberal judge. Still paying bills while this dam squatter pays zero. They keep pushing this moratorium. Still praying they lift it March 31 but who the hell knows at this point. It’s like the homeowners have no rights. 😡

  5. The government hates private property rights. They government believes it owns all property, but allows people to use it.
