On Tuesday, a lawsuit challenging Alabama’s mask order will go before a judge in Montgomery. Three Jackson county residents are suing, saying the governor can’t issue orders like this.
But the governor’s lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss this case, saying there’s a clear legal authority for the mask mandate.
Ultimately, a judge will make a ruling on whether or not the lawsuit can move forward.
Huntsville Attorney Mark McDaniel says the plaintiffs argue they have been deprived of due process and that being forced to wear a mask hurts their individual liberties.
