Lawsuits Challenging Biden Vaccine Mandates Mount, Likely Heading To U.S. Supreme Court


Multiple lawsuits have been filed against the Biden administration over three different vaccine mandates targeting private employees, federal employees and healthcare workers serving Medicare and Medicaid patients.

But lawsuits filed by 27 states over the private sector mandate is setting the stage for the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in because they were filed directly in five federal courts of appeals.

Eighteen states sued the Biden administration and other agencies in lower district courts over a mandate affecting federal employees and contractors. Ten states sued in district courts over a health care worker mandate.

Florida and Indiana filed individual lawsuits, one in district court, one in circuit court, respectively.

Twenty-seven states sued in five circuit courts over private sector mandate

Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Utah and private employers sued the Biden administration in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, arguing the mandate is an “illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate imposed on private businesses.”

The Fifth Circuit, citing “grave” constitutional issues, quickly granted their request to temporarily blocked the mandate.

Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia sued the administration over the private sector mandate in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals; Indiana sued in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
