Federal trial and appeals courts suspend COVID-19 relief preferences by race and sex

The government offered almost no evidence that justifies privileging women and some non-whites over others, 6th Circuit says.

Just The News:
Less than two weeks after a federal judge found that race and sex preferences in federal COVID-19 relief were likely unconstitutional, a federal appeals court reached the same conclusion.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a preliminary injunction Thursday against the preferences in the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, which is administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA).

“This case is about whether the government can allocate limited coronavirus relief funds based on the race and sex of the applicants. We hold that it cannot,” reads the majority opinion by Judge Amul Thapar, once considered a short-lister for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominations. more here

4 Comments on Federal trial and appeals courts suspend COVID-19 relief preferences by race and sex

  1. Government rules preferences for women and minorities in doling out COVID relief funds is unconstitutional—women and minorities hardest hit.

  2. I heard the money was already doled out. Wonder what happens now? I filled out an app and I qualify for $178,000 in aid based on how much my sales went down. Being a straight white male I’m at the bottom of the list and I don’t expect a penny but I did a double take when I saw what I qualified for. Pretty sure even the people who get money are only getting a fraction of what they ‘qualify’ for.

    BTW, where is all this money comng from? Oh, that’s right, they’re printing it. Can’t wait for the minimum wage to be $20/hour and a Cheeseburger to cost the same.

  3. I’m confused. Is putting blacks ahead of the queue correcting for past injustices or is it racist to use them as guinea pigs for the vaccine?
