Trump-appointed judge who overturned mask mandate becomes instant Republican heroine

"Curt Levey, president of the conservative group Committee For Justice, said he supported Mizelle’s decision both on its own terms and as pushback against federal overreach on coronavirus safety regulations.

'Liberals are unhappy that a single federal judge was able to end this mask mandate, but they are simply reaping what they sowed,' he wrote in an email.

The left’s hatred for President Trump led it to turn the federal courts into a national injunction machine that showed little deference to the executive branch or the limits on district court judges. Liberals now have to live with this new legal regime they brought about.'

Levey added that the left’s unhappiness with the idea that a young judge appointed by Trump could wield this power 'really has nothing to do with her age and everything to do with her being a conservative appointed by a president they despise.'"
