One by one, Joe Biden’s unlawful COVID shot mandates are being knocked down by the courts. Rulings on multiple cases, covering three of Biden’s COVID shot mandates, have come down on the side of freedom!
1. Mandate for companies with 100 employees or more:
On November 12, a three-judge panel on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked Biden’s OSHA rule nationwide, which tried to force compulsory jabs on all companies with 100 employees or more.
On December 17, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals dissolved the stay, allowing the OSHA mandate to proceed.
On January 7, 2022, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the shot-or-test rules for large employers.

2. Mandate for certified Medicare and Medicaid providers:
On November 29, the federal Court for the Eastern District of Missouri granted a preliminary injunction that applies to certified providers of Medicare and Medicaid and suppliers in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming—all of which had sued to end Biden’s mandate.
On November 30, the federal Court for the Western District of Louisiana issued a nationwide injunction blocking Biden from forcing his shots on any health care provider or employer that receives Medicare or Medicaid funding. The lawsuit was brought by 14 states.
On December 15, a U.S. District judge for the Northern District of Texas issued a preliminary injunction against the CMS mandate in Texas.
Also on December 15, a three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the nationwide injunction, allowing the CMS mandate to take effect in 25 states that were not part of the previous lawsuits that received an injunction.
On January 7, 2022, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the federal mandate for health care workers.
3. Mandate on federal contractors: BLOCKED!
On November 30, the federal Court in Kentucky issued a preliminary injunction blocking Biden’s Executive Order, which attempted to force federal contractors to inject their employees with COVID jabs. This order frees federal contractors in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee from the mandates.
On December 7, U.S. District Judge R. Stan Baker expanded the injunction nationwide in a seven-state lawsuit brought by Georgia, Alabama, Idaho, Kansas, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia and a trade organization.
On December 20, U.S. Magistrate Judge David D. Noce issued a preliminary injunction against Biden’s shot mandate for federal contractors in 10 states: Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
On December 22, the federal court in Florida issued a preliminary injunction against Biden’s shot mandate for federal contractors. The judge in the case wrote that Biden had likely exceeded his authority with his executive order and intruded into a matter traditionally handled by the state.
The Biden administration is lawless. They are delusional to order injections into the arms of anyone he chooses, with no exceptions.
Not only is Biden expected to continue appealing and fighting the above rulings, but the Biden administration is also trying to unlawfully compel military service members into abandoning their religious rights.
This is especially shocking because the Department of Defense (DOD) is already under a microscope in our case, Navy SEAL 1 v. Biden. Beginning January 7, 2022, the DOD must report to the court every two weeks on how it is handling service members’ religious exemption requests. If the exemptions continue to be denied, the court will intervene.
The DOD claimed in court that no adverse action would be taken against our clients. Not only are our clients already experiencing extremely adverse treatment, but we have also received an internal memo from the JAG instructing military commanders on how to get their personnel to abandon their religious exemption claims.
This bullying and coercion will not be viewed favorably by the court … but Joe Biden just doesn’t seem to care. He’s trying to get away with everything he can, while he can.
Lenny called our office last month. He had been on the liver transplant list for some time, patiently waiting for the organ donation that would save his life. Lenny is a Christian with a deep faith that has sustained him through years of illness.
COVID jabs can be dangerous for immunocompromised people like Lenny, but his objection to the jab goes further than his own safety—he simply will not take a drug developed or tested with aborted fetal cells.
But Lenny was taken off the liver transplant list because he refused to take the shot that had a good chance of killing him. Liberty Counsel intervened, and we are happy to report Lenny is back on the liver transplant list! Please be in prayer for his new liver to come soon!
We now have three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court defending religious freedom, including the one I argue on January 18, 2022.
