Federal appeals court keeps ban on vaccine mandate for federal contract workers in three states

A federal appeals court ruled in favor of a ban on the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contract workers in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee on Thursday.

The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the injunction in a 2 to 1 ruling that agreed with the lawsuit’s claim that the vaccine requirement was unconstitutional.

“This ensures, while the case continues to proceed, that federal contractors in Kentucky aren’t subject to the Biden Administration’s unlawful mandate,” Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said in a statement, according to Breitbart News.

The ruling only applies to the three states involved in the legal dispute.

The lawsuit is among several legal cases challenging the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The mandate had been set to take effect this week.

It is uncertain whether the Biden administration will appeal the decision. The case may have an impact on related cases as well, as more Americans push back against the government overreach.
