The Supreme Court has decided to move the ultimate resolution of Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates for health care workers and private companies employing 100 or more workers onto the fast track. The Court has set January 7 as the date for oral arguments on the cases involving both mandates.
The mandate on private companies is currently set to take effect on January 4, and it appears that the High Court will take no action before that date.
On Tuesday, Justice Brett Kavanaugh asked for a response from the Biden Administration to requests seeking an order blocking the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rule mandating proof of vaccinations or weekly testing applying to private companies.
American Commitment President Phil Kerpen tweeted this week that attorney Steve Lehotsky will argue against the OSHA rule before the Supreme Court. Kerpen described Lehotsky as “an absolute debate legend.”
The move to hear the case on an expedited schedule followed an order from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals last week that removed an injunction against the OSHA rule by the Fifth Circuit Court in November.
Biden’s mandates designed to compel injections of the experimental vaccines that use fetal material obtained from the abortion industry are being pressed forward by the administration despite evidence that those receiving the jabs are as likely to carry and transmit the coronavirus the unvaccinated.
The Supreme Court acted earlier this month to allow the mandate for healthcare workers to stand while the cases challenging that mandate are on appeal. Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito dissented from that order. Trump appointees Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett joined the liberal Justices in letting the mandate stand pending the Court’s final decision.
