Federal judge sides with Norwegian Cruise Line in fight with Florida over vaccine passports

Source: Politico

A federal judge on Sunday night sided with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings in a fight with Florida over vaccine passports, granting the cruise line’s request for a preliminary injunction that blocks a state law barring businesses from requiring proof of vaccination.

In a nearly 60-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams stated that Florida “fails to provide a valid evidentiary, factual, or legal predicate” for its prohibition on vaccine passports.

“Amid myriad, rapidly-changing requirements regarding quarantining and testing, there is one constant that facilitates cruise line customers’ access to advertised ports of call: documentary proof of vaccination will expedite passengers’ entry into virtually every single country and port where Plaintiffs intend to sail,” Williams wrote.

Background: Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has consistently fought against coronavirus restrictions such as mandates for face masks, in April signed an executive order barring vaccine passports. The Florida Legislature also approved a measure blessing the order and fining companies that violate the ban.

4. All the cruise lines are already essentially telling DeSatan to fuck off...this is icing on the cake

All the cruise lines who operate from Florida are already requiring proof of vaccination, and they've recently implemented masking rules as well. Cruise line executives know damned good and well that a major outbreak onboard a ship would be a death sentence for the industry.

because Caribbean islands are refusing to give unvaxxed cruise ship passengers entry. Kind of makes the whole trip impossible.

13. Hey Ronny, you DT butt-kiss numbskull...

the judge makes a clear point that there are other ports of call with passport requirements that must be considered, so it’s it’s not all about you.

DeBoxofrocks never ceases to amaze me with his stupidity.
