6th Circuit Court Rules Against Biden Administration in OSHA Vaccine Mandate Lawsuit

Sixth Circuit Court blocks federal government’s motion to transfer the Occupational Safety and Health Administration vaccine requirement lawsuit to a different court.

QUICK FACTS:
  • On Dec 3, the Sixth Circuit Court denied the government’s request to move the case to the Fifth Circuit and the D.C. Circuit.
  • The court has also rejected as “moot” the White House’s bid to dissolve a stay on the mandate, The Epoch Times reports.
  • In addition, the court released a timeline for each side to file their arguments with the final filing date of December 10th.
  • The federal vaccine mandate was set to go into effect Jan 4.
NBC REPORTS:

This latest ruling comes directly after a pair of District courts blocked the Biden administration from enforcing two different vaccine mandates that would require millions of American workers to get vaccinated.

The first from a court in Louisiana where a judge blocked the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services from their vaccine mandate on healthcare workers. This ruling applies to all but 10 states nationwide, those states already blocked the mandate.

The second ruling came from Kentucky where a district court judge blocked the administration’s mandate requiring government contractors to get vaccinated. This ruling applies to Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.
