Photo by Maranie R. Staab/Getty Images Missouri’s Attorney General filed lawsuits against 36 school districts that he claims are “unlawfully” enforcing mask mandates on faculty, staff and students, according to litigation obtained by the Daily Caller.
Attorney General Eric Schmitt argued in litigation filed on Jan. 21 that individual school districts “do not have the authority to impose” public health orders on students. School districts “only have the power to issue those health rules that the General Assembly provides them,” according to the AG’s lawsuit against the districts.
“The General Assembly did not give school districts that authority to condition in-person attendance on compliance with an arbitrary mask mandate,” Schmitt said.
On Nov. 24, a Cole County Circuit Court judge ruled that mask mandates violate Missouri’s Constitution and its separation of powers clause, according to FOX 4 . Schmitt began pressing school districts to remove mask mandates after the ruling, though he was met with pushback from district officials.
