The judge extended a temporary restraining order prohibiting the enforcement of the Douglas Co. mask waiver.

DENVER – A federal judge on Monday extended through November 22 a temporary restraining order that prohibits the Douglas County Health Board from enforcing its health care order, which allows parents to waive Douglas School District mask requirements for their children.

Colorado District Court Senior Judge John L. Kane extended the Temporary Restraining Order issued on October 26 to 3:00 pm on November 22 and set another conference call for Friday at 10:00 am.

The original interim restraining order expired at 3 p.m. Monday, but Kane said during a hearing last month in which he issued the order that he could renew it if the county and the health board were still in the process of negotiating an agreement. … The district is also seeking a preliminary injunction in this case.

In court on Monday, Kelly Dunaway, attorney for the health board and the health department, said the health board had indicated that it could withdraw the initial public health order at a meeting scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. if the board overturned its ruling on public health. This will be discussed at Friday’s status conference, Kane said.
