Mister Justice Kavanaugh sided with he liberals in a 5-4 decision involving the CDC's moratorium on evictions.
While almost everyone agrees that the CDC had no authority to issue such a moratorium in the first place, Kavanaugh let it ride.
As he often does, Kavanaugh wrote to explain why he voted to allow the moratorium to remain in place. On the one hand, he said he agreed with the District Court that the CDC exceeded its statutory authority by issuing a nationwide moratorium.
But, he said, because the CDC has said it will end the moratorium in a few weeks he would allow it to remain in place. He said the extra weeks will “allow for additional and more orderly distribution of the congressionally appropriated rental assistance funds.”
This is precisely the wrong decision. If Kavanaugh believed hat the CDC over-stepped its authority, he should have slapped it down. But, he seems to have been hanging out with his liberal buddies too long, and now believes that his job is to do some sort of feel-good social engineering.
