The state says Palmer imported surgical masks for 10 cents each and resold them to the Central Vermont Medical Center for $2.50 each.

Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan is suing.

A judge will decide next week whether to grant a temporary injunction that would force Palmer to stop selling the masks.
