U.S. District Judge David J. Novak, in his written opinion, dismissed all claims against both the airlines and STAT-MD. The complaint against the CDC and HHS were dismissed as moot. Novak stated that the last extension of the mask mandate ended May 3, 2022, and last enforced the order on April 18, due to a Vacatur Order issued by U.S. District Judge Kathryn K. Mizelle of the Middle District of Florida, according to the opinion.
