It seems like sanity may somewhat reign with the adults in Texas. Judges issued two restraining orders against Governor Greg Abbott.
Here are the stories.
Judge Grants Temporary Restraining Order Against Abbott ‘s Ban on Mask Mandates
“Immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage will result” if Jenkins cannot mandate mitigation measures against COVID-19, the judge wrote
A judge ruled in favor Tuesday of Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins after he filed a temporary restraining order against Gov. Greg Abbott’s mask mandate ban.
Abbott’s executive order that prohibits mask mandates is not a “necessary action to combat the pandemic,” a Dallas County district judge ruled.
The ruling allows a temporary restraining order filed by Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins to be upheld.
Judge delivers blow to Texas Gov. Abbott’s ban on mandates, allows San Antonio to require masks in schools
Temporary restraining order allows San Antonio, Bexar County to impose mask mandates
San Antonio leaders scored a victory in court against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday in the ongoing fight over mask mandates.
A Bexar County Civil District Court Judge granted the city and Bexar County’s request for a temporary restraining order against Abbott’s executive order banning mask mandates in schools.
Effectively, the ruling allows Bexar County and San Antonio officials to issue a mask mandate in public schools and other guidance like quarantine protocol — for now. Officials say they plan to have an order issued by the end of Tuesday.
It is important that we remove power from those causing harm. More importantly, we must call out Red State governors that are causing harm, that are maiming, that are killing many Americans with their ill-advised failed ideological edicts.
