Two Texas judges issue temporary restraining orders against governor's mask mandate order


August 12, 2021

(CNN) - Two Texas judges have issued restraining orders which will temporarily block the enforcement of Gov. Greg Abbott's latest emergency order involving masks.

The governor's order, issued last month, included language that no governmental entity, including school districts, could require mask-wearing.

On Monday, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins asked a court for a temporary restraining order against the order, saying the governor "attempted to prohibit local elected officials from making a different decision, in response to local conditions, to protect their own communities."
