Federal judge rules against airline mask mandate

A federal judge ruled against the Biden administration’s airline mask mandate on Monday, sending airlines into chaos as they sought to determine new policies on short notice. However, it remains to be seen if the Biden administration will appeal the decision.

The Biden administration had extended the federal airline mask mandate for an additional two weeks recently. The new ruling opposed the overreach.

“The government purports to discover this unheralded power to regulate how individuals appear and behave in public in a long-extant statute—one over seventy years old,” Judge Kathryn Mizelle wrote.

“This history suggests that the power the government sees in § 264(a) is a mirage,” she added.

“The Biden administration says the mask mandate covering airlines and other public transportation will not be enforced while the government decides how to respond to a judge’s order striking down the rule,” according to the Associated Press on Tuesday.

The new ruling may finally bring an end to the two-plus years of “two weeks to stop the spread,” offering new freedom to America’s airline travelers. But it is more likely that a long legal battle is in the works, and the Supreme Court may have to settle this issue.
