NEW: The Supreme Court declines to block the execution of Alabama prisoner Willie Smith, who is scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection tonight. No noted dissents, but Sotomayor adds a brief statement expressing concerns about Alabama's conduct.
NEW: Texas files its response to the Justice Department's emergency application asking the Supreme Court to block the state's six-week abortion ban.

Breyer is the third justice since August to turn away an emergency challenge to a vaccine mandate, without referring the issue to the full court. Earlier: Barrett declined to block Indiana University's mandate, and Sotomayor declined to block NYC's mandate for school employees.
Justice Stephen Breyer turns down request to block enforcement of Maine's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, although he leaves open possibility that plaintiffs can return to #SCOTUS after the court of appeals acts: https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/21a83.html

#SCOTUS grants request by Texas abortion providers to fast-track consideration of petition for cert before judgment in challenge to SB8. Response from Texas is due by noon on Thursday -- same time as Texas's response to US filing today. Order is here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/101821zr1_2c8f.pdf
