On March 10, NAHB won a key legal decision when the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio ruled that by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) exceeded the authority Congress had granted it.
NAHB had filed suit in the district court along with Monarch Investment Management Group and Skyworks, Ltd. regarding what we asserted was the lack of authority of the CDC to issue an eviction moratorium. NAHB was also assisted by the Sterling Group, who provided an affidavit illustrating the harm caused by this moratorium.
The ruling in the case, entitled Skyworks, Ltd., et al. v. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, et al., sets a great precedent against government overreach.
