Ron DeSantis Win: Federal Appeals Court Reverses CDC Order Regarding Vaccination Rules

A federal appeals court, which previously sided with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) amid Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) battle against the federal health agency over the vaccination rules it is imposing on the cruise industry, reversed its decision, ultimately siding with the state over the CDC’s No-Sail Orders.

The saga between DeSantis and the CDC began in April after the governor announced the lawsuit over the federal health agency’s restrictions on the cruise industry — a major economic driver in Florida. DeSantis’s administration scored a victory in June after a federal district court in Tampa issued a preliminary injunction favoring DeSantis. The court concluded the CDC’s rules on the cruise industry “are likely unconstitutional and overstepping their legal authority.” But last weekend, prior to the lower court’s ruling, which would have taken effect July 18, the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit voted 2-1, issuing a temporary stay of the injunction.

Notably, the judges who voted for the stay were Clinton appointee Charles Wilson and Obama appointee Jill Pryor. Judge Elizabeth Branch is a Trump appointee who dissented.
