State Seeks To Dismiss Lawsuit Against Mask Use In Schools

With negotiations at a halt, the state is seeking to dismiss a lawsuit requesting to block mask usage in schools. The lawsuit, filed earlier this year, was by a group of parents claiming masks are harmful to children. The CT News Junkie reports that both sides have failed to reach an agreement and new court dates have been requested in November. But the plaintiff has had a difficult time finding witnesses. State lawyers suggest the group is “dragging their feet.”
