Chief Justice denies ‘emergency’ request to block TSA from enforcing mask mandate
Bloomberg Government’s Ellen Gilmer broke the news:
Chief Justice John Roberts just denied an emergency stay request targeting TSA enforcement of the federal transportation mask mandate https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/21a198.html\u00a0\u2026— Ellen M. Gilmer (@Ellen M. Gilmer) 1639075326
The request came from two men, a Washington, D.C. resident and a Sanford, Florida resident.
They claim the mandates “exceed” TSA’s authority. They also claim the mandates “run afoul of the 10th Amendment,” “violate the constitutional guarantee of freedom of travel,” violate the Fifth Amendment’s right to due process, violate the “Air Carrier Access Act,” and are “arbitrary and capricious.”
The Chief Justice offered no comment.
At least 49 studies prove masks work to reduce the spread of the deadly coronavirus. More than 800,000 Americans will have died from the disease by the end of this year.
