LANCASTER, N.Y. (WIVB) – A judge has ruled in favor of the Lancaster School District in a lawsuit over face masks.

The parents of two children with asthma sued the district over requiring students to wear a mask, unless they have a doctor’s note.

The lawsuit claimed the children had trouble breathing on a hot day.

The judge, Emilio Colaiacovo, ruled that it’s logical to have documentation for a medical exemption.

He said the lawsuit was “a mad-dash to the courthouse” to attract attention.
