‘Let Them Breathe’ files lawsuit against California

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The groups Let Them Breathe and ReOpen California Schools filed a lawsuit last week against the state to end mask mandates for K-12 students.

Judge Cynthia Freeland, the same judge who heard Let Them Breathe’s lawsuit on reopening schools in March, has been assigned to hear their case.

Currently, the groups are waiting for a court hearing date.

A member of Let Them Breathe, Melanie Burkholder, joined KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez on Good Morning San Diego to discuss updates with the groups’ lawsuit.

Let Them Breathe says that the restriction of children in schools are not justified by the common public health laws.
