Miserable Mask Mandates On The Horizon-DOJ Join's Biden's Fight
Just when you thought you were out—Biden ordered the DOJ to fight the court's ruling that found mask mandates on public transit were unconstitutional. After the judge’s ruling, the DOJ said it would appeal the judge’s ruling if the CDC deemed it necessary. The DOJ has told the federal appeals court that the CDC order, issued in January 2021, was "within" the agency’s legal authority, Fox News reported.
The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle came in a case brought in Florida federal court by Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc. and frequent air travelers Ana Daza and Sarah Pope against the administration. Judge Mizelle determined that the mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act by being outside the scope of the CDC's authority, was "arbitrary" and "capricious," and for not going through the required notice and comment period for federal rulemaking.
