Gorsuch called emergency measures taken during the COVID-19 crisis that killed more than 1 million Americans perhaps âthe greatest intrusions on civil liberties in the peacetime history of this country.â The 55-year-old conservative justice pointed to orders closing schools, restricting church services, mandating vaccines and prohibiting evictions in a broadside aimed at local, state and federal officials, even his colleagues.
