In Maine, District Court Judge Charles C. LaVerdiere ruled in favor of Hickox's right not to be quarantined. As Bloomberg reports, that represented a reversal of "restrictions he placed on the nurse the previous day, concluding the government didn't prove she posed a danger to others."
One wonders how this affects, first of all, the political brands of Governors Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo, and Paul LePage.
Secondly, will Hickox's defiant high-profile stance hurt her own professional trajectory? Will she find it difficult to find good jobs and be promoted?
