The Court of Appeal leaves powers to vaccinate large businesses

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A federal appeals court on Saturday temporarily suspended the Biden administration’s demand for vaccines for businesses with 100 or more workers.

The US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has urgently suspended the FHA requirement for these workers to be vaccinated by January 4, or the mask requirement and weekly tests.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said the move was preventing Democratic President Joe Biden from “pushing forward with his illegal exaggeration.”

“The President will not impose medical procedures on the American people without the checks and balances provided by the constitution,” Republican Landry said in a statement.

At least 27 states have filed lawsuits challenging the rule in several counties, some of which have been made more conservative by the judicial appointments of former Republican President Donald Trump.

The Biden administration is promoting widespread vaccinations as the fastest way to end the pandemic that has claimed more than 750,000 lives in the United States.

The administration is confident that the requirement, which includes fines of nearly $ 14,000 for violation, will pass legal tests in part because its safety regulations precede state law.

The fifth district, located in New Orleans, said it was postponing federal vaccine requirements due to potential “serious legislative and constitutional concerns” raised by plaintiffs. The government is to provide an expedited response to a permanent injunction petition on Monday, followed by a petitioners response on Tuesday.
