A class action lawsuit and request for a temporary restraining order has been filed against President Biden and his secretaries at the departments of Defense and Homeland Security. Spearheaded by the Liberty Council, the suit defends federal employees, contractors and military personnel who have been ordered to take experimental COVID shots to avoid dishonorable discharge or termination from employment. The first court date is set for Nov. 15.
This lawsuit by a major legal foundation with a long history of courtroom success should give airlines, trucking and transport businesses and other companies ample reason to push pause on forcing employees to comply with Biden’s oppressive executive orders.
The Alaska Railroad took a step in this direction on earlier this week by rescinding its vaccine mandate for all employees. This is the right call. Let Biden’s mandates work their way through the courts before implementing such legally questionable emergency orders which are literally destroying livelihoods and threatening countless U.S. companies.

The Liberty Council’s class action suit argues that Biden’s mandates are illegal for at least two reasons. First, they violate religious liberty by coercing religiously pro-life employees to get injected with a shot that has been tested and/or developed with aborted fetal cell lines. Second, the lawsuit points out that COVID shots cannot be mandated under the federal Emergency Use Authorization law (EUA).
Liberty Council notes that while the FDA did approve the BioNTech’s “COMIRNATY” shot for COVID, this is not available to Americans and won’t be for many months. That means there is no such thing as FDA-approved COVID shots in the U.S., only those approved for emergency use authorization. Since the government cannot force citizens into taking experimental EUA drugs, COVID vax mandates are illegal.
