Lucas Wall, frequent flyer, is suing the Biden Administration over federal mask mandates. He has now tried to have his lawsuit dismissed.

He filed a massive legal response Wednesday that reaffirmed his contention that mandates are unconstitutional.

Wall stated to Insider that it will take court action to ensure Americans don't have to sacrifice their right to breath freely in order to use any public transportation.

Wall stated that he would next request oral arguments before a federal judge.

In a motion to dismiss Wall's lawsuit, the government stated last week that CDC medical experts were responsible for decisions regarding mask mandates - not courts.

Wall's government response appeared to be the first long-running legal defense of federal mask mandates. These mandates were established following an executive order signed by President Joe Biden in January. He is also named as a defendant.

Wall claimed that he can't wear a mask because of medical reasons and filed his lawsuit in Florida federal court. Wall also requested an emergency injunction from the Supreme Court, but Justice Clarence Thomas refused.

Wall of Washington DC filed a 47-page brief Wednesday arguing that Congress had not delegated to the CDC the responsibility of deciding whether to implement the mask mandates.

"Congress has vigorously discussed mask mandates, but failed to pass one," he wrote. He wrote that many legislators have pushed for the termination of the CDC mandate.

Wall's freedom to travel was not threatened by the government, partly because he could leave Florida anytime. Wall also sued seven airlines, claiming their mandates violated his rights.

"If masks work, then why has so many TSA employees tested positive for coronavirus?" He wrote this in his filing.

Many health officials favor masks. Gerald Harmon, president, American Medical Association, stated that the CDC's revised guidance is necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19, particularly the more contagious Delta variant. According to the WHO, masks are an important measure to prevent transmission and save lives.

Wall's Wednesday response was impressive, partly because he is representing himself. Wall also filed 72 exhibits. These included news clippings and medical studies. Wall's response was more than 1,500 pages long, which is seven times as long as his original complaint.

He wrote in his filing: "The government whines that my complaint is long as well as filled with facts and exhibits supporting them, but there is no inability for them to understand what they have been charged with, as shown by their detailed arguments in opposition."

Wall's argument was also influenced by the length of Wall's filing. He stated that he had attached 115 articles that claimed that masks were not effective. He also noted that seven of the articles submitted by government lawyers proved they were effective.

He stated that the court should favor evidence that overwhelmingly discredits CDC’s political position, which it seeks to justify with science.

Wall spoke to Insider last week as he was preparing his response. Wall was in his spare bedroom in The Villages, Florida where he claimed he was stuck since the pandemic.

He said that he was still at his mom's house, and that he is in the air conditioner. It was difficult to go outside in the heat and humidity that Florida summer brings.

He said that gathering the material was "enjoyable", but also "a helluva lot of work." He added: "It is definitely a cause in which I strongly believe."

Insider reached out to the CDC for comments.
