Another federal judge has blocked Joe Biden’s workplace vaccine mandate saying that a president has no such authority to order anything like that.
U.S. Magistrate Judge David Noce, a Missouri-based judge, issued a preliminary injunction to prevent Biden’s arrogant power grab.
This ruling is on top of last week’s ruling similarly blocking the mandate issued by a federal judge in Georgia.
“The vaccine mandate would reach beyond the workplace and into the realm of public health. The Court concludes that plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the issue of whether the mandate exceeds the scope of the power granted to the President,” (under federal law), wrote Noce.
In September, President Biden issued an executive order that included the vaccine mandate for federal contractors, as well as healthcare workers and private companies. Each degree of mandate is being challenged in the courts.
The most recent injunction applies to Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
The rulings have been see-sawing back and forth as some judges have denied blocks on the mandate while others approved of blocks.
It seems, at this point, that the U.S. Supreme Court will have to step up and hear the case to determine if Biden really can enforce such an outrageous mandate.
