The Biden Administration extended the ban on evictions until the end of July.
In May a district court ruled that the CDC didn’t have the authority to place the ban, but the judge put his order on hold.
Justice Kavanaugh sided with Justices Sotomayor, Bryer, Kagen, and Chief Justice Roberts in upholding the ban on evictions.
