The National Apartment Association (NAA) will soon file a lawsuit against the federal government seeking compensation for business losses suffered under the unlawful U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) eviction moratorium. The CDC’s protracted moratorium is financially damaging rental housing providers and violating rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, and NAA is fighting head-on to ensure our members and the entire rental housing industry are made whole and that similar “emergency measures” cannot be enacted again.
Rental housing providers who are subject to and have suffered damages under the CDC order can join NAA as plaintiffs to recover losses. We recognize that participation is an important business decision, but also realize that our success depends on engagement by housing providers to demonstrate the breadth of losses to the rental housing industry. We are confident that the CDC will be found to have acted illegally based upon court rulings to date, and potential damages will be assessed based on the losses suffered by individual companies
