BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The city of Hailey is asking a judge to throw out a lawsuit brought by an anti-mask group, arguing the group’s members can’t show they’ve been harmed by a local mask mandate. The Health Freedom Defense Fund based in Sandpoint filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court last month, saying the city’s mask mandate amounts to a mandatory human experiment. City attorney Deborah Ferguson on Tuesday asked a federal judge to dismiss the case, noting that none of the group’s members claim to have been cited for violating mask rules. She noted the mask mandate includes several exemptions including one for people who cannot medically tolerate masks.
