WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that government agencies can use aggressive eviction policies to get rid of drug users in public housing.

Justices, without dissent, said they had no problem with a law that allows families to be evicted from public housing for the drug use by one member.

The losers were four elderly California tenants who received eviction notices. They challenged the zero-tolerance policy for drugs in federally subsidized housing and won in lower courts.
