Federal Court Blocks Another Biden Vaccine Mandate, This One Demanding That Federal Contractors Get the Jab

The judge ruled that the grant by Congress to the Executive of authority to procure goods and services obviously did not include the power to force people to get vaccinations against their will.

A federal judge in Georgia issued a nationwide injunction that prevents the U.S. government from enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on federal contractors, temporarily shutting down the last remaining vaccine requirement by the Biden administration.

U.S. District Judge Stan Baker in Savannah, Georgia, said Congress did not clearly authorize the president to use procurement to impose a vaccine requirement on contractors that will have "vast economic and political significance."

The lawsuit was filed by the states of Georgia, Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia as well as a trade group for contractors.

AllahPundit just turned out all the lights, pulled the curtains closed tight, and put on the Cure's Disintegration.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at December 07, 2021 01:59 PM (GPwVZ)

Cities and States derive their police power (the power to regulate) from their respective State Constitutions, so those questions will have to be decided by the State Courts on a case by case basis.

The cases in Federal Court are saying that the Federal Government has no power under the Constitution to make these kinds of orders.

Posted by: Gref at December 07, 2021 01:52 PM (AMIL/)

Remember - with these mandates, Time is of the Essence. But when it gets set for trial, the Courts can easily make sure that it doesn't even come up for argument for at least 6 months, maybe a year.

Giving an injunction and setting it for trial "someday" is the Judiciary's standard model for killing anything time sensitive that it doesn't like.

93 Unfortunately, private businesses can still do as they please. Such as completely exempting UAW employees and completely mandating (submit status, get "vaccinated", weekly testing if medical/religious exemption accepted) all salaried employees.

If this were based on science, every employee would be forced to weekly test, since the "vaccines" don't immunize.

We live in stupid and evil times...

Posted by: Clyde Shelton at December 07, 2021 02:15 PM (Do5/p)

94 Temporary injunctions require evidence of both irreparable harm to the plaintiffs and that the plaintiff is likely to prevail at a subsequent trial. In this case, the question is whether the administration even has the legal authority under the Constitution and existing statutes to issue the mandates and numerous courts have answered no.

Believe last week, lost in the mix, another judge issued an injunction for the military because the vaccine that was approved by FDA and the EUA vaccine are not the same.

101 My employer is a federal contractor, so this one hits home for me. We got an email last week saying that we have until January 18th to upload proof of vaccination.

This is even though we (3,500 to 4,000 employees) have been working from home since April 2020 and the decision was made recently that we will continue to do so indefinitely, probably forever!

Now tell me, what the heck does this have to do with public health? I'm in my early 40s and my wife and I are trying to have a second child. We actually discussed the possibility of me quitting my job and selling our house.

Posted by: Mad Max in VA at December 07, 2021 02:10 PM (H/wdc)

nope, the tide has turned. The Federal mandates are dead, and they're not coming back. The Georgia Federal Judge has taken a page out of the Hawaiian Judge's playbook and issues a Nationwide Block on the rule - no Judge on his level can overrule that, it has to go to the next level up, a court of Appeals. And the 6th Circuit has consolidated all of the mandate cases, and they are sounding very negative about upholding any of them.

Clyde, not so, if worried about it, consult an employment lawyer now as they are far cheaper to send a nasty letter to your employer than wait to be fired and go to trial.

Without federal cover, then private companies mandating the shot are on the hook for liability and then there are various state laws that may apply in your state such as conscience laws.

Judge Baker got it right. It's an obvious usurpation of Congress's Article 1 powers. It probably also has a 4th amendment problem. Medical decisions are a private matter and this vaccine's partial effectiveness (doesn't provide mild cases which spread infection) doesn't warrant violating personal privacy for arbitrary and capricious reasons (using compliance as a defacto loyalty test).

Dude, a lot of these lawsuits will be filed at the state level without the federal cover for their acts. Same as the fact of not liable in one case does not forestall liability in another. As the information about side effects expands, the real possibility is something like the Big Tobacco lawsuits by state AG's. I would not want to be an investor in the pharma companies involved in it as there is increasing information that the trials for the vaccine were conducted in a fraudulent manner. That may well prevent use of immunity under the Cares act for them.

Not to mention the extremely slippery slope of "religious exemptions." If you do what a lot of companies do, which is issue a lengthy questionnaire about what you believe, for how long, what other medicines you take, etc., then there is a serious problem. In the case of a private firm, you're getting firmly into "religious test' territory, which is against the Civil Rights Act. If you're a government agency, you're afoul of the Establishment Clause. If you're a federal contractor, you're on the wrong side of both.

There is a reason I have been waiting until the last minute to file for an exemption.

Nah, the Iranians have spent billions of dollars, and have endured crushing international sanctions, because they just like the idea of having a bunch of highly enriched uranium around. Perhaps they'll distribute the uranium as Hanukkah presents.

They're not going to weaponize all that uranium because they're nice guys, and have absolutely no interest in trying to implement a Second Holocaust!

181 141 Whig,

So this injunction literally stops the contactor mandate until a ruling in a higher court?

Posted by: Brunnhilde

Yes, in fact, any contractor that tries to persist can be brought to that court under contempt charges of ignoring the injunction. If worried about it, I would immediately consult an employment lawyer about options because a lot depends on your state law, employment contract, and possible protected status under ADA, religion, etc. It is cheaper to do this now than later while you still have your job and often a letter on your behalf via a lawyer to corporate counsel can work wonders on its application to you.

182 Good news, bad news.

The good news is Fed Judges telling Biden he can't pull this kind of sh!t.

The bad news is citizens and organizations of citizens needing to get a Fed Judges to protect their persons and their basic rights from the Biden Junta's crazed decrees.

I cannot recall a similar situation in my lifetime of a Prez mandating that Fed employees and contractor employees will be fired if they do not submit to having their bodies tampered with. Nor can I recall a Prez telling private companies of any size to do the same as above or be fined. Yet the Junta started out saying, "Go to hell with your objections about us violating your person and your rights, with no precedent; if we think something is Constitutional you'll do as we say, serfs!"

The Fed Judge in Georgia made his injunction national. In a rational system, he probably shouldn't be able to do this, but Liberal Judges over the last 20 or 30 years (the so called Hawaiian Judges) have been doing this for a good 20 or 30 years now, and no one ever moved to stop them from doing it. So now it's an established power, established by practice, not black letter law.

197 Also, late to the party, but not mentioned in the thread below:

Alec Baldwin cannot make a penny if he is uninsurable. Pointing a gun at another human being and pulling the trigger makes you uninsurable.

99% of cases end in settlement. But where a party wants something that can't be bought, like insurability, they have to go to trial.

Alec Baldwin and the studio heads sat in a meeting with their respective lawyers and came up with this: "Alec Baldwin vs. the Gun Manufacturer in the Trial of the Century!"

This way Alec and his financiers don't poison their relationship by pointing fingers at each other.

But before his financiers signed the joint defense agreement, they needed him to commit to the product liability defense. In a manner he can never backtrack on.

And THAT's what the Stephonopolous interview was about. (George S. was in the meeting, too.)

221 But, they already have Federal cover. For the majority of civil cases brought to trial the business will have Federal support for enforcing mask and vaccination mandates. This administration has already said as much... numerous times.

Posted by: Martini Farmer

Does not work this way Martini. For the commerce clause to be employed, it has to be a matter of commerce--under the precedent of Jacobson, states can mandate vaxxing because they have 'police powers' to regulate for the health,safety,and welfare. The FedGov does not have plenary powers so it has to rely on the commerce clause. Given the injunctions, the administration does not have the power for agencies, absent congressional statutes possibly, to mandate a vaccination. So, any contractor relying on that cannot claim Cares act immunity unlike medical and perhaps pharma companies (see fraud mentioned above), and cannot claim that federal govt agency actions under commerce clause prohibit state lawsuits to hold contractors liable for damages under state law.

But maybe if enough people in the company put in for exemptions and management sees how much they are going to have to spend weekly for X amount of employees to get tested, maybe they'll get rid of the test mandate for those of us who have been working from home since March 13, 2020.

You and me both! The Board of Curators basically admitted the only reason they went along with it was because it would be inconvenient for the university and their contracts. Not because they sincerely believed in the vaxx.

Posted by: "Perfessor" Squirrel

In both cases, might be well advised to get a session with an employment lawyer because the next step might be to bribe states to do what the feds cannot. The old precedent of Jacobson v Mass, later used by the infamous Buck v. Bell, permitted Mass to fine Jacobson for not getting a vaccination despite the fact that Jacobson had already had the disease and natural immunity to it.

There are some questions vis a vis whether a fine is similar to losing your job (proportionality) or whether requiring a vaxx might violate other protected privileges such as religious conviction, health conditions, etc. protected by other laws .

It's not a national injunction but more that the Defendant is enjoined. That Defendant happens to be everywhere, but the Defendant is still enjoined. Where, doesn't matter. A nationwide injunction of a different kind is where it applies to defendants who are not before the court/not part of the case. That is a different beast.

I never found the fascination with Disintegration either TBH. Thought it was dull and plodding, but I suppose that was the current zeitgeist he managed to tap. Much preferred the debut up to Head On The Door. Kiss Me x3 probably would have been better with some judicious editing. Losing Tol was a bigger blow than I'm sure Robert is willing to admit.

Posted by: whig at December 07, 2021 02:15 PM (9hXN1)

Any more info on that? Provided people demand the process, the mandate is going to crumble for private employees, for federal contractors, for healthcare workers, unless the institutions implementing the guidance mandating vaccination offer much broader exemptions for medical or conscientious reasons.

The military is the outlier though. Whole different world. They are as a matter of course denying all exemption requests. Absolute insanity but no recourse whatsoever for servicemembers. Really tragic given that a ton have been exposed to COVID, a ton are recovered, and the disease poses them no risk whatsoever.

I always had the impression of the same at my university. They never seemed to be whole-heartedly on-board. I had a feeling that any religious exemption request would be granted.

The problem with this is that the defendant is supposed to reside, do business, or otherwise be located in the main within the District that court is presiding over the plaintiff's request for a TRO or injunction. This is why Justice Thomas complained about nationwide injunctions - it defeats the whole concept of the Federal District court system.

Things like, "we whipped polio by forcing everyone to get vaccinated." "Capitalism didn't beat Russia, our sanctions and detente did." "America shouldn't fight wars to win." "Racism is the worst human sin."

So we get their obsession with vaccine mandates, a Russian boogeyman, and white supremacists while slinking out of Afghanistan--fighting old battles in a new world.

Even 5 star classics don't necessarily have solid front to back winners. And of course, it's all subjective. You can be groundbreaking and still have some duff songs.

They ditched the synth-heavy stuff after Presto in 1989. From Roll the Bones through Clockwork Angels (6 albums) they returned to their late 70s form for the most part. Their final 2 albums are outstanding.

Peart's family tragedies were in the late 90s -- before they released Vapor Trails.

There is a really poignant scene in the doc where George Harrison has stormed out and threatened to quit, John is off doing whatever and can't be reached and it's Just Ringo and Paul and Paul is visibly upset about everything and he says, "And Then There Were Two," referring to him and Ringo, and it looks like he's going to cry.

Gave her no real directions at all, and she decided "ok this first time I'll just go totally over the top, and then they can tell me what they really want."

Wolfus, you did fine at resistance but you were pragmatic about it. Best not to be a martyr if one can avoid it.

In my case, I took the J&J one shot before the whole vaxx mandate and side effects blew up. Had a pretty bad reaction similar to when I had Covid prior to that and of a similar type. Given I have long standing autoimmune issues, still self doubt whether I did the right thing but my job required at the time being around a lot of people.

Probably the fact that I have to take a lot of anti inflammatories for my condition prevented hospitalization when I had covid and lightened the side effects from the vaxx. Won't take a booster obviously.

Gave her no real directions at all, and she decided "ok this first time I'll just go totally over the top, and then they can tell me what they really want." So she did the first take that way, and asked "okay now how do you really want me to do it?"

And she was shocked when they said "oh no, we think that was exactly what we were looking for! No need to do it again!"

Totes agree. That album was half luck, and there's an example. She totally saved that - the song without her would have been meh at best. DSOTM is a perfect album, they were never that on-point and concise again.

Most of them were already facing big lawsuits over Covid from the families of employees who died in the initial Covid surge. Whether the businesses actually thought the vaccine was working, or just cynically wanted to look like they are following the latest and greatest "science," the vaccine mandates became part of their defense in those suits.

Elephant stampede. Plus, executives don't really care about shareholder money--see Volkswagen's purposeful fraud regarding emission standards for their diesels as an example.

Same as lawmakers, the only peer group that most executives care about is their own. They literally have very little skin in the game which is the fault of corporate capitalism.

Exactly. I am not putting my future in the hands of a court system which is completely unreliable and mostly woke and left-wing. Especially since if I fought this, I'd likely be fired and then unemployed and trying to get a new job in an industry where every business will require "vaccination".

So knowing that, I submitted my "religious exemption" and will wait to find out if it is accepted and will then submit to weekly testing. It's bullshit, but this is the new normal. If I had any hope left that there were thousands of others like me who were willing to quit and force the company's hand to get this shit ended, I'd join them. But I have no hope left about anything. I see the reality for what it is.

I was sad that I didn't get to see them until 1978, and even then people were "they're still together?". My first taste of music beyond the Beatles was a friend's big sister listening to Threshold of a Dream - parts of which I hated as a 14 year old.

The last time I saw the Moodies it was just the 3 by then, I think it was around 2011. It was March and absolutely freezing at the Saratoga Winery. It was Graeme's 70th birthday, he danced a jig. Justin could still hit the notes for Tuesday afternoon just fine. Clean living I suppose. And in CA I'm not sure I've ever attended a show where pot wasn't everywhere.

444 Someone asked Ringo once who the greatest Beatle was, and he pointed out that the band was nothing before him. I think he was only half joking.
Posted by: Caesar North of the Rubicon at December 07, 2021 02:52 PM (o0mD3)


Someone once asked Lennon if Ringo was the best drummer in the world, to which he responded, "he's not even the best drummer in the Beatles."

One beauty of the Anthology series is that people who claimed Pete Best was unfairly fired were served solid audio evidence that he was a shit drummer with one trick (some sort of roll) up his sleeve.

But, as a Beatles bio once pointed out - and, I thought, very accurately - until they were signed to EMI, the Beatles were essentially a 50s cover band. Had Ringo not come along, they might well have stayed small-time and not launched the British Invasion.

The administration was counting on people soul searching over whether they'd risk their livelihood over getting the jab. It's entirely understandable. They expected a court challenge, so they set a relatively aggressive deadline (especially if the mandate is to be "fully" vaccinated, two weeks past 2nd dose).

I got jabbed back in April & May, thinking it was a ticket back to something like normalcy. About a month later, mask mandates at the office were back in place thanks to new CDC "guidance" (i.e, after "fully vaccinated" people kept testing positive).

458 I've been pointing out since day one of his announcement that if the gov't suddenly levies a new requirement on contract employees, in order to remain working on the contract, that new requirement requires a justification for each and every individual contract (IOW, if your contractors are working from home, you would have to say, "sorry, but that won't apply" - it can't be just a blanket thing that applies to EVERYONE), and it requires the gov't to cough up funding and work time to achieve the requirement. Which it has to then write into EVERY STINKING CONTRACT. I was there when they imposed Security+ on contractors, and it took a while because they had to justify everything, then put it in writing, then cough up more money for the contract.
