A federal judge in Washington, D.C., on Monday questioned the Biden administration’s approach to the latest extension of an eviction moratorium, raising statements officials made before and after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the federal block on evictions.

U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich of the District of Columbia in May had ruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lacked the statutory authority to issue a national eviction moratorium, but later stayed her ruling. A team from Jones Day, representing landlords challenging the moratorium, took the case up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which declined to lift the stay in a 5-4 ruling.
