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

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
