Federal Judge Sides With DeSantis on Mask Mandate Ban

Epoch Times-

On Wednesday night, a Miami federal judge handed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis a victory when he ruled against parents of students with disabilities in a lawsuit over public school mask mandates.

Twelve parents from eight different Florida school districts whose children have special needs sued the governor and the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) over an executive order (pdf) that allows parents to opt out of student face coverings. The eight school boards of Alachua, Broward, Hillsborough, Orange, Palm Beach, Pasco, Miami-Dade, and Volusia were also named in the suit for implementing the governor’s order. The federal suit argued that their children were at elevated risk of becoming ill or dying from COVID-19 if other children came to school without facial coverings.

In Judge K. Michael Moore’s decision, he denied the parents’ request for a preliminary injunction against an executive order that DeSantis issued in July, which was the catalyst for the Florida Department of Health to issue a rule (pdf) requiring school districts to allow parents to opt out of any student mask mandates. So far, 13 school districts have defied the governor’s order. Two counties, Broward and Alachua, have been fined for non-compliance, while others are under investigation by FDOE. more here

  1. What’s wrong with these mask zombies? It takes only a few minutes to look into the numerous reports and studies on the ineffectiveness of masks in respect to viruses. Ineffectiveness studies that far out number studies that show effectiveness.

  2. How far does anyone have to have their head up their a** to not realize that this is not about public health anymore? It’s blindingly obvious when the government is doing everything they can to keep meds that are proven to be effective against covid out of the hands of the public, while at the same time trying to force a vaccine that is neither safe nor effective on everyone. Are people going to be like the jews in WWII and just line up to go to the camps?

    Sorry for the rant, I’m just getting fed up with all of President skidmark’s B.S.
