(St. Paul, MN) — A group of parents suing the state to implement a mask mandate in all Minnesota schools is dealt a setback. Ramsey County District Judge Thomas Gilligan denied the plaintiff’s request for a temporary restraining order that would allow the governor to allow masks in all public schools. The justice stated that the court could not order a co-equal branch of government to exercise its political judgment to implement a specific policy. The attorney representing Parents Advocating for Safe Schools says despite the bump in the road they are still proceeding with the lawsuit.
