CDC’s Federal Eviction Moratorium Struck Down by Federal Judge, plus Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones2.26.2021YahooMHProNewsLogoIt isn’t from the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) that this news tip that follows came early today to MHProNews. Rather, this tip early today came from a manufactured home industry attorney.

Per that source, “A Texas federal court has ruled the CDC [Center for Disease Control] eviction ban unconstitutional.  The opinion is attached…The judge issued a declaratory judgment against the eviction ban.  He did not issue an injunction, but indicated that he would, if needed.”

Texas Landlords Say Feds Can’t Block Evictions,” said LexisNexis on Oct 23, 2020.  It is that case that was ruled on.
The legal principles involved in this ruling may go beyond this one issue.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet


Here is how left-of-center CNBC reported on this matter today.

A federal judge in Texas has ruled that the national ban on evictions that’s been in place since September is unconstitutional.

Although the Covid-19 pandemic persists, so does the Constitution,” U.S. District Judge John Barker wrote Thursday evening, siding with a group of property managers who argued that the ban exceeds the power of the federal government.

 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national eviction moratorium was first announced under former President Donald Trump in September 2020. It prohibited evicting renters who were financially struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic.

 President Joe Biden has since extended the moratorium through March, and has called for it to be kept in effect through September 2021.”



OPINION AND ORDER This lawsuit presents the question whether the federal government has authority to order property owners not to evict specified tenants. Plaintiffs argue that this authority is not among the limited powers granted to the federal government in Article I of the Constitution, and thus the decision whether to enact an eviction moratorium rests with a given State. Disagreeing, the federal government argues that a nationwide eviction moratorium is within Article I’s grant of federal authority to regulate commerce among the States.

 Only that issue is posed here. This lawsuit does not question that the States may regulate residential evictions and foreclosures, as they have long done. For instance, during the Great Depression, 27 States enacted foreclosure moratoriums and other laws meant to mitigate the effects of a wave of foreclosures. Geoff Walsh, The Finger in the Dike: State and Local Laws Combat the Foreclosure Tide, 44 Suffolk U. L. Rev. 139, 139- 43 (2011). In upholding one such law against a challenge not raised here, the Supreme Court recognized the “control which the state retains over remedial processes” in this area as part of the State’s “police power, [which] is an exercise of the sovereign right of the government to protect the lives, health, morals, comfort, and general welfare of the people.” Home Bldg. Ass’n v. Blaisdell, 290 U.S. 398, 434, 437 (1934).”

The full ruling is linked here.

Our legal source underscored that point by saying in its cover message with the ruling, “Two caveats.

First, the ruling only pertains to the federal eviction ban, not eviction bans imposed under state law.  Second, it’s expected that the decision will be appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.”

MHProNews will plan to monitor and report as merited on an expected appeal of this ruling.
