Governor Acted Within Authority: Split 5-4 Washington Supreme Court Upholds COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium

“This case concerns a challenge to the scope and limitation of the emergency powers statute, RCW 43.06.220, and whether the governor exceeded statutory or constitutional authority in issuing eviction moratorium proclamations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Justice Charles W. Johnson wrote in his dissent. “I would hold that the governor exceeded statutory authority when issuing the eviction moratorium proclamations.”
