Judge Strikes Down CDC Mask Mandate

Libs hurt worst. Yahoo! Federal judge strikes down CDC mask mandate for travel

A federal judge in Florida on Monday struck down the CDC's requirement that masks must be worn on planes and trains, ruling that the agency overstepped its statutory authority.

Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, a U.S. District Judge in the Middle District of Florida and a Donald Trump appointee, ruled in favor of the Health Freedom Defense Fund's lawsuit against the federal government that was initiated in July 2021.

"It is indisputable that the public has a strong interest in combating the spread of Covid-19," Mizelle wrote. "In pursuit of that end, the CDC issued the mask mandate. But the mandate exceeded the CDC statutory authority, improperly invoked the good clause exemption to notice and comment rulemaking and failed to adequately explain its decisions. Because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in the pursuit of desirable ends, the court declares unlawful and vacates the mask mandate."
