Federal Employee Vaccine Mandate Blocked

Federal judge called it a “bridge too far.” 

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown issued a nationwide ruling that the president could not require federal employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The order that required around 3.5 million federal workers to get vaccinated or seek exemption was issued by President Joe Biden. 

The judge said at issue was whether the president can “with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment. Judge Brown said that “under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, it is a bridge too far.” 

The Justice Department said it would appeal the ruling. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For district and appellate court judges as they decide cases regarding the extent of the government’s authority under the Constitution.
  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s direction as they issue guidelines and recommendations for public health.
  • For wisdom for U.S. governing officials as they assess the current status of the coronavirus.
