California judges lift coronavirus eviction ban

The Judicial Council of California on Thursday voted to end the statewide eviction moratorium next month, reopening courts to landlords and pressuring Gov. Gavin Newsom and lawmakers to address a potential housing crisis.

Courts will be allowed to process evictions after midnight, Sept. 1, although a patchwork of more than 100 local laws could prevent delinquent tenants from being displaced. Most Bay Area counties and cities have passed renter protections during the coronavirus pandemic, although many are scheduled to expire in August.

Lawmakers pressured the justices for more time to craft a legislative solution, and the council delayed their decision by several weeks.

But the panel of state judges on Thursday insisted a permanent solution come from either the governor or the legislature.
