The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a request to block a federal mask mandate for air travel.
The emergency application was filed by a father on behalf of himself and his 4-year-old autistic son, both of whom claim to be medically incapable of wearing masks for extended periods.
The article goes on to state the following:
Their request was filed to Justice Neil Gorsuch, who handles emergency applications arising in several western states, and he referred the matter to the full court. The justices denied the request without comment or noted dissent.
Meanwhile, Gorsuch is being blasted by Democrats over his refusal to wear a mask in court to “protect high-risk Justice Sonia Sotomayor,” forcing her to participate in arguments and conferences remotely.
Justice Neil Gorsuch is the only member of the Supreme Court who refuses to wear a mask to help protect high-risk Justice Sonia Sotomayorhttps://t.co/dQeu8Nei84

Nina Totenberg reports that (1) the Chief Justice asked his colleagues to mask up out of respect for Sotomayor’s health concerns, (2) only Gorsuch refused, and (3) his refusal forced Sotomayor to participate in arguments and conference remotely. https://t.co/DmsQV8j7Wz pic.twitter.com/7JG5hMN0q7

Gorsuch’s refusal to mask up on the bench even when asked by the Chief Justice to do so in order that the diabetic and hence immunocompromised Justice Sotomayor could attend in person shows just what kind of jerk Gorsuch is. I wish he weren’t an HLS alum. https://t.co/djLtpKWNtI
