For landlords, it seems that evictions that have been stalled for over a year due to the moratorium can move forward. For those unaware, the eviction moratorium meant that tenants who were behind on rent could not be evicted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, there were exceptions to the moratorium. Tenants who had not applied for rental assistance or had violated some other part of their leases (criminal activity, unapproved pets, etc.) were not eligible for protection.

At any rate, it appears evictions will continue until the Supreme Court says otherwise.
