U.S. District Judge Suspends Biden Administration’s Mandatory Vaccine Order Against Federal Contractors

【Japan Himalaya League】 Author: Kevin wang  Translator: Ranting

On Nov. 30, U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove issued a ruling suspending the Biden administration’s mandatory vaccine order against federal contractors on the grounds that the Biden administration may not have the authority to mandate vaccinations for federal contractors. The ruling applies to the three states where the lawsuit was filed.

U.S. District Judge Tatenhofer on Nov. 30 granted a request for a temporary injunction filed by the attorneys general of Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee against the Biden vaccine injunction, according to The Epoch Times.

Judge Tatenhove held that the President does not have the authority to use his congressionally granted authority to regulate the procurement of goods and services by federal agencies to mandate vaccinations for employees of federal contractors and subcontractors.

In a statement, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, a Republican, expressed support for the ruling. “This is not about vaccines, it’s about a presidential order,” he said. “The judge’s opinion makes it clear that our position has always been that the president cannot impose these orders on the people.”

Biden signed the mandatory vaccination order on September 9. Weeks later, the White House required federal agency contractors to force all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 (the CCP virus) unless the employees received a vaccination waiver. And those contractors who do not meet the Dec. 8 deadline set by the mandate will lose government procurement and business.

The three states that filed the lawsuit accuse Biden of making the vaccination mandate both illegal and unconstitutional. The lawsuit argues that the vaccination mandate fails to take into account several important potential impacts, including but not limited to the economic impact, the cost to states, the cost to citizens, workforce and supply chain disruptions, and employee fitness disparities.

So far, the White House has not made any response to this decision.
