Galey v. Biden

Galey v. Biden

The Latest

The case is currently stayed pending the Army’s implementation of their rescission of the military vaccine mandate under the National Defense Authorization Act. We anticipate the Government will file a Motion to Dismiss arguing mootness that is similar to their approach in the Crocker case. We will oppose a Motion to Dismiss and ask the Court to rule on the important issues of religious discrimination that have been raised.

The Timeline
  • Complaint. On December 19, 2022, the Pelican Institute filed its Complaint on behalf of Master Sergeant Galey in the Western District of Louisiana. The case was assigned to the Honorable James D. Cain, Jr.
  • Legislation. On December 23, 2022, President Biden signed the National Defense Authorization Act for 2023, legislation that ordered the military to rescind the vaccine mandate. The legislation was passed after significant attention was brought to the issue because of cases like that of Master Sergeant Galey. The case remains stayed pending the Army’s implementation of the vaccine mandate rescission. We anticipate the Government will file a Motion to Dismiss arguing mootness that is similar to their approach in the Crocker case. We will oppose a Motion to Dismiss and ask the Court to rule on the important issues of religious discrimination that have been raised.
