Not all heroes wear capes, but some of them regularly don robes (but certainly not masks) while fighting to make the world a better place—heroes like Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch, an early frontrunner for Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year.

When the Supreme Court justices returned from the holiday break earlier this month, all of them were wearing masks on the bench. Well, all of them except Gorsuch, who refused to cover his handsome face. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who typically sits next to Gorsuch, wasn’t there. The Obama appointee took part in the proceedings via remote microphone set up in her chambers.

The article goes on to state the following:

NPR reports that Chief Justice John Roberts had asked his colleagues to wear masks to placate Sotomayor, who did not feel safe around people who were unmasked. Gorsuch, a pro-freedom legal scholar appointed by former president Donald Trump in 2017, was the only one who declined to coddle his colleague.

The report notes that ever since the Supreme Court resumed hearing cases in person in October 2021, Sotomayor, a diabetic, has worn a mask to work, as the FDA considers diabetes to be among the “highest-risk comorbidities” for Covid-19 patients.

However, Fox News provided additional clarification on the situation, and debunked the NPR claim. Fox host Shannon Bream said on Tuesday about NPR’s story, “I am told that is not accurate. A source at the Supreme Court says there’s been NO blanket admonition or request from Chief Justice Roberts that the justices begin wearing masks to arguments.”

“The source further stated Justice Sotomayor did not make any such requests to Justice Gorsuch. There was also no refusal by Justice Gorsuch. The justices are all vaccinated and boosted and they do tests before taking the bench for arguments,” Bream added.

  1. Wait a minute…the media lied about something…and then sent it out for all to see as the truth?…well thats a first…NOT…smh

  2. The “Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year” cravenly refused to join Thomas and Alito in voting to hear the challenge to the 2020 Election brought by Texas, even though the Supreme Court had original jurisdiction in the matter.

    Gorsuch is no slouch, however. He is a leading libertarian influence on the court. He is an ardent textualist. He believes criminal laws should be clear and interpreted in favor of defendants. He is skeptical of efforts to purge religious expression from public spaces, and he is not a fan of the far too expansively interpreted commerce clause. I give him an A minus.
