Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) Wins Federal Lawsuit Challenging the Biden Administration’s Travel Mask Mandate

HFDFNote:  The mask mandates have been particularly difficult, and even discriminatory, for people with sensory issues and autism. Some good news from Health Freedom Defense Fund. While airline travel may be seen as a luxury, public transportation is not.

Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) wins federal lawsuit challenging the Biden Administration’s Travel Mask Mandate. Judge struck down CDC’s travel mask mandate.

Without any public comment, or serious scientific justification, CDC bureaucrats imposed a sweeping Travel Mask Mandate applying to every American over the age of two.”

— Leslie Manookian

SANDPOINT, ID, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2022 / -- Calling it a “victory for basic American liberty and the rule of law,” the Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) today won a federal lawsuit challenging the federal government’s Travel Mask Mandate.

The decision, by a U.S. District Court judge in Florida, invalidated the order by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requiring that masks be worn on airplanes, trains, buses and other travel conveyances and in transportation hubs.

“Without any public comment, or serious scientific justification, CDC bureaucrats imposed a sweeping Travel Mask Mandate applying to every American over the age of two,” said HFDF President Leslie Manookian. “There are laws that set boundaries for federal agencies to protect individual freedom and the Court clearly found that CDC exceeded those limits. Unelected officials cannot do whatever they like to our personal freedoms just because they claim good motives and a desirable goal.”

The lawsuit was brought by HFDF and two individual Florida residents, specifically alleging that the CDC exceeded its statutory authority and failed to abide by the federal Administrative Procedure Act.

In her 59-page opinion, Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida detailed how the CDC circumvented the requirements requiring public comment, and how the agency failed to justify the Mask Mandate under the specific language of federal law governing health emergencies.

“The Mandate exceeded the CDC’s statutory authority, improperly involved the good cause exception to notice and comment rulemaking and failed to adequately explain its decisions,” Judge Mizell wrote.

“The court agreed with our main arguments and rejected the CDC’s justifications for the mask order,” said Daviller Law Group (DLG) attorney Brant C. Hadaway. “The judge found that the CDC exceeded its statutory authority, and that the CDC’s interpretation of its authority was not entitled to deference.”
“An agency is also supposed to provide notice and comment and reasonably explain itself,” Hadaway said. “The CDC’s mask order fell short of both requirements.”

The court vacated the mask order and remanded it to the CDC.

The case is:

I couldn't visit Disney World for over TWO YEARS thanks to their no-exceptions mask policy. Even after lifting mask mandates in other locations, Disney kept mandating masks on transportation due to the federal mandate, but ignored the exemptions in said mandate. Thanks to Kathryn Kimball Mizelle I was finally able to visit and had a magical time.

Disney's official policy was "Guests who are unable or unwilling to wear face coverings under any circumstances or exemptions are not allowed into any location in which face coverings are required."


@Annie - For your viewing pleasure....

"The GTCA Song is the sequel to the PCR Song, starring the hilarious Randolf. This music video highlights Bio-Rad's SsoFast™ EvaGreen® supermix and "salutes all the scientists out there doing PCR" with a great sense of humor."

You will never believe how I found out about these videos. I was researching Kary Mullis, who won the Nobel Prize for inventing PCR, when I came across his article/obituary featured on the U.C. Berkeley Alumni web page (his alma mater). The article was a slam job (he always insisted that his invention could not be used for medical diagnoses). No respect for the deceased Nobel winner. However, many of his supporting colleagues wrote comments in his defense. One comment mentioned this popular ad that Kary approved of. I found it on You Tube and was amazed! It was an irreverent parody of the popular "We Are the World." Michael Jackson - We Are The World (Official Music Video)


OMG @Emmaphiladelphia! That PCR video is the funniest effing thing I’ve seen in awhile! Respect! And thank you!

So we know that the judge who overturned the travel mask mandate was 35, Trump appointed, & deemed “not qualified” by the bar association when she was given a lifetime appointment. Do we know anything about whether or not the CDC had the authority to implement mask mandates? I’m pretty sure we know that the media does not know what ad hominem means.


Thank you for sharing this news.
We all need some good news in these dark das.

Emmaphiladelphia was never designed to diagnose Covid.

The POTUS has been E-mask-ulated. Ha!


Thank you HFDF & thank you Ms Manookian! It’s been truly vindicating watching the world realize how scientifically ridiculous it is to make unvaccinated for the flu/ flu recovered nurses wear masks. Every Covid 19 vaccinated/recovered/re-infected passenger has for months been wondering why they’re still wearing something over their airways. As Amy Goodman tells us in her reporting today that American Covid 19 deaths are about reach one million & Jen Psaki tells us that her administration is looking into a repeal of the court’s decision I can’t help but wonder why neither of those women ask why the vaccines don’t work. God forbid either of them ask about the vaccine injured.

Such wonderful news!

Congratulations and thank you to Leslie Manookian and all involved with HFDF!

Let’s pray that more and more people will come to see the ludicrousness and dangers of covering our 2 means of breathing, as well as our major means of communicating and interacting with others. Unbelievable that this utter nonsense and inexcusable tyranny has gone on for so long.
