Florida Formally Withdraws the State’s Emergency Application from the US Supreme Court in the Ongoing Case with the CDC

Today, the State of Florida withdrew its emergency application which was filed on July 23rd and thanked the Court for its consideration. On July 23, 2021, the State of Florida filed an emergency application to vacate the stay entered by the Eleventh Circuit in this case. However, soon after Florida’s filing to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit reversed course, vacating the stay and denying the government’s motion for such relief. The State therefore withdraws its application at this time and thanks the Court for its consideration.

As it stands based on Friday’s reversal, the CDC’s Conditional Sailing Order remains a set of non-binding recommendations for cruise companies operating out of Florida.

    @Joni – not much. The CSO is still only a ‘guideline’ in FL based on the 11th circuit upholding the stay put in place by Judge Merryday. Since the 11th circuit upheld the stay it meant any Supreme Court action was unnecessary and thus they withdrew.

    But CDC have now said that cruise ships are ‘transport’ therefore their indoors mask mandate applies (Reuters) on cruse ships not following the CSO.
    Another bite of the cherry?
