US Supreme Court Lets Maine Health Care Vaccine Mandate Stand
The United States Supreme Court left intact a vaccine requirement for Maine health care workers stand this week, rebuffing another legal challenge targeting COVID-19 vaccination mandates. The denial by Justice Stephen Breyer, who handles emergency requests from Maine.
Justice Breyer’s decision did outline that the plaintiffs could again seek relief at the Supreme Court if the appeals court either rules against it on the merits or fails to reach a decision by Oct. 29, the effective date for the vaccine requirement.
Two weeks ago, a federal judge in Maine and a federal appeals court in Boston also ruled against the plaintiff, prompting an emergency request to the Supreme Court.
Three conservative justices, Justices Gorsuch, Thomas and Alito dissented stating they would have agreed to the health care workers' request.< Previous Article | Next Article >
