The CDC has reversed its decision to let the eviction moratorium expire, and has reinstated that moratorium until October 3. The actual text of the order can be found here. (pdf warning) There is one possibility that I see to removing a tenant:
If there is another part of the lease that is being violated, or if the lease has expired, it seems to me that there is room here.
Where does this end? Is there any endpoint where a property owner gets his property back? There is all of this talk about “people losing their homes,” but the people losing their homes are the landlords, not the tenants.

“And just like that the supreme court didn’t matter anymore.”
See, all you need to do to overcome a court decsion you don’t like is ignore it and act like it never happened. Well, that and have the juice to back up giving them the big kiss off. Trump would’ve done well to learn that early on. And get rid of the scores of obstinate assholes who facilitated the enforcement of shitty court decisions he didn’t like. Oh well, better luck next time doofus.
In practical terms, this is just a further revelation that we are in a post-law mode of existence here. Everything now is about the raw excercise of power by those who have it, and their ability to ignore and beat down anything that challenges what they intend to do, even if it comes from within some part of the system itself.
To put it succinctly, this is your (about 27,000th) official notice that there no longer exists any legal mechanisms to protect anyone at odds with “the system” or what it wants. Which in turn means the only remaining real protections are of the extra-legal variety.
Yeah. It’s gonna suck.

“where does this end?”
I think we all know where and how all of this ends.

I read that courts will likely side with landlords after the SC ruling. That the CDC statement is just hot air. I hope that’s the case. As horrible as the homeless problem has become in the US, I see the need to add 6 million more. Won’t pay for a roof over your head? America has a bountiful supply of overpasses.

There’s a LOT of real property in this nation. And that’s too big not to control, now isn’t it? Control of everything in the hands of the collectivists, that is.
There is no need for individuals to own anything – especially real property. Because when citizens own real estate, they become rooted in constitutional thinking. They understand responsibility and the desire to protect that which you own.

guess that means you can’t sell it from under them either…that would be funny…

You could, but who will buy it knowing that the tenants cannot be evicted and aren’t paying rent?
Would you buy a car, knowing that someone else would still be the one driving it around town?
