Justice Thomas Rejects Appeal to Federal Mask Mandate

In a bit of a surprise ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas has refused to hear an appeal on the federal mask mandate.

The case was brought by Lucas Wall, who maintains he cannot travel now due to the mandate.

He claims to have an anxiety disorder that prevents him from wearing a mask.

Case Dismissed

Thomas, who oversees appeals in the state of Florida, rejected the case without an explanation.

Wall, who was a frequent traveler, was obviously disappointed in the ruling.

He stated, “Of course it’s still disappointing Justice Thomas did not take a more in-depth look at the illegal and unconstitutional mask requirement.”

The decision by Thomas was a bit of a surprise for two reasons…

First, the Court has seemed receptive to lifting pandemic restrictions that have been in place.

Second, the anti-mask movement has been mostly a conservative movement, of which Thomas is a staunch supporter.

This decision will more than likely dampen hopes that a piece of legislation introduced by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) will be passed.

Paul put forth a bill that would block federal agencies from imposing “any federal requirement related to COVID-19 that an individual wear a face mask when utilizing any conveyance…or transportation hub.”

On the new legislation, Senator Paul stated, “The federal government forcing the American people to continue to wear masks despite the fact that we’ve already reached herd immunity is ridiculous and needs to end immediately.

“I am introducing the Travel Mask Mandate Repeal Act of 2021 to put a stop to this nanny state mandate of requiring masks on public transportation.”

With the rejection by Thomas on this front, we are more than likely stuck with masks on public travel until Biden sees fit to remove the mandate.
