Challenges to Biden Vaccine Rules Will Come Before Ohio-Based U.S. Appeals Court:
Conservative-leaning Sixth Circuit is designated as referee for cases related to vaccine-and-testing rules for private employers
A conservative-leaning U.S. appeals court in Cincinnati was randomly selected Tuesday to decide challenges to the Biden administration’s new rules requiring many employers to ensure their workers are vaccinated or tested weekly for Covid-19.
Legal challengers have petitioned federal appeals courts around the country to review the rules, formally issued earlier this month by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The requirements, which apply to businesses with 100 or more employees and cover roughly 84 million workers, are scheduled to take effect Jan. 4.
Some challengers, including Republican-led states and some employers, have said the rules were unlawful government overreach. Others, including labor unions, said the rules didn’t go far enough.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation conducted a random lottery Tuesday to determine which of the nation’s 12 regional appeals courts would be the designated home for the cases. The winner drawn was the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, one of the more conservative U.S. appeals courts. --->READ MORE HERE
Lawsuits challenging Biden's private sector vaccine mandate combined:
Multiple legal challenges to President Joe Biden's workplace COVID-19 vaccine mandate will be consolidated and heard by justices with the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.
States, businesses and other groups filed 34 lawsuits against the Biden administration's requirement that private sector businesses with 100 or more employees require workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus or face weekly testing. The lawsuits were filed across all 12 federal circuits.
They argue the mandate is unconstitutional government overreach that will add to the nationwide worker shortage by forcing people to quit their jobs. They also argue it would be expensive and nearly impossible to enforce.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation held a lottery Tuesday and the 34 lawsuits will be consolidated and sent to the Sixth Circuit for arguments.
A nationwide stay of the mandate remains in effect after the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans twice ruled for plaintiffs, citing "grave" constitutional concerns. --->READ MORE HERE
