Supreme Court Wipes Out Three Rulings Rejecting Federal COVID Vaccine Mandate
Dec 26 2023

“The U.S. Supreme Court vacated the rulings in three lower court cases that had challenged the Biden administration’s federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal agency employees and military service personnel. The decision by the nation’s highest court to grant the Biden administration’s request to set aside the previous judicial rulings rejecting a federal COVID vaccine mandate erases the legal precedent set by the lower courts.

The Appellate courts were split in their decisions about the COVID vaccine mandate with those challenging the federal vaccine mandate succeeding in some cases and the Biden administration prevailing in other cases.

The Supreme Court majority instructed the lower court to dismiss the cases as moot after the vaccine mandates were rescinded. By wiping out the historical record, the Supreme Court has ensured that any legal challenges to future vaccine mandates will be cases of first impression without precedent.”

Court upholds order freezing Biden vaccine rule for employers
Nov 12 2021

“A federal appeals court on Friday upheld its previous order temporarily blocking President Joe Biden’s vaccine and testing mandate for large companies, rejecting a Justice Department request to lift the freeze.

A three-judge panel for the Louisiana-based Fifth Circuit said in a 24-page ruling that the Biden administration’s order exposes companies to “severe financial risk if they refuse or fail to comply, and threatens to decimate their workforces.”

“On the dubious assumption that the mandate does pass constitutional muster, which we need not decide today, it is nonetheless fatally flawed on its own terms,” the court wrote, signaling the uphill legal battle facing the administration.”

BREAKING: 5th Circuit Reaffirms Stay of Biden’s Vaccine Mandate
Nov 12 2021

“A federal appeals court reaffirmed its earlier halt of President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on private employers.

Writing for a panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Engelhardt described the mandate as “fatally flawed” and said OSHA grossly exceed its legal authority. “…health agencies do not make housing policy, and occupational safety administrations do not make health policy. In seeking to do so here, OSHA runs afoul of the statute from which it draws its power and, likely, violates the constitutional structure that safeguards our collective liberty,” the judge wrote.”
