The recent temporary halt on residential evictions by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) raises a number of legal and logistical questions. Jackson Walker partner Brad Nitschke, who leads the Firm's COVID-19 Task Force, and governmental affairs consultant Kate Goodrich discuss how these issues affect both landlords and tenants and what the order does and does not cover. In this episode, Kate explains how this is not an automatic protection for tenants, and that this is not a waiver on rent or fees owed, while Brad discusses three legal arguments that landlords may bring against the federal government challenging the CDC director's authorization to issue such a moratorium.
