A North Carolina judge sent a guy to jail for refusing to wear a mask in his courtroom even though there was no local mask mandate in place

It seems obvious that, no matter how far the pandemic recedes and no matter how thoroughly the masking hypothesis gets debunked, there will be people who will always be obsessed with wearing them:

A North Carolina man was thrown in the slammer for 24 hours after refusing a lefty judge's order to wear a mask in court – despite no such local mandates in place. ...

[Gregory] Hahn, a 47-year-old US Navy veteran and single father, was among 98 jury candidates called to Harnett County court Monday who showed up not wearing a mask, WRAL reported.

The courthouse didn't have a mask mandate, but Judge Charles Gilchrist – an appointee of former Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue – ordered everyone in his courtroom to wear one.

When Hahn refused, the judge had him arrested and sent to jail for contempt of court.

Get that? A Navy veteran and single father.

"There were signs saying no masks were required," Hahn told WRAL News. "We all walked in."

"You can go in any district courtroom without a mask, you can come into superior clerk court without a mask and the [district attorney's] office without a mask, but with Judge Gilchrist he has a mandate that you must wear a mask," said Clerk of Superior Court Renee Whittenton.

The Hon. Judge Gilchrist running his courtroom like:

How cruel did they treat this American hero and single father?

"It was the worst 24 hours of my life. I was refused to make a phone call to my minor child who is home," he told [Tucker] Carlson.

I know it's almost impossible to sue a judge but he should absolutely bring a suit against this guy.
