Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts finally buried an attempt from NPR to tarnish Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, Roberts clarified that he did not, in fact, ask Gorsuch — or any Supreme Court justices for that matter — to wear a face mask in court.
"I did not request Justice Gorsuch or any other Justice to wear a mask on the bench," Roberts said.

Roberts was forced to release a statement after NPR reported on Tuesday that Justice Sonia Sotomayor has been teleworking, and therefore hearing cases from her chambers, because Gorsuch refused to wear a mask on the bench after Roberts asked him to do so.
