Release: Federal Appeals Court Suspends Federal Vaccine Mandate

Release: Federal Appeals Court Suspends Federal Vaccine Mandate

Brandon Trosclair, Louisiana business owner, filed his lawsuit with attorneys from the Liberty Justice Center and Pelican Institute to stop vaccine mandate – mandate now on hold for all Americans

NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana business owner, Brandon Trosclair and a group of workers from Texas have successfully halted the Biden Administration’s illegal vaccine mandate. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled the OSHA mandate cannot be enforced “(b)ecause the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate.”

Trosclair and six employees of CaptiveAire Systems are represented by the national law firm Liberty Justice Center and the Pelican Institute for Public Policy.

Brandon Trosclair, who employs nearly 500 people across 15 grocery stores in Louisiana and Mississippi said, “This is an incredible first victory for all Americans that the Fifth Circuit so quickly realized that the Biden employer vaccine mandate would cause great harm to businesses like mine. As the legal process continues, I look forward to sharing more of my story. This stay is a great first step by the court.”

Sarah Harbison, General Counsel at the Pelican Institute for Public Policy said, “I am confident that the courts will see this mandate for what it truly is: An attempt to make laws while bypassing Congress.”

Patrick Hughes, president and co-founder of the Liberty Justice Center said, “The Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate represents the greatest government overreach of our generation and we are elated that the court recognizes the ‘grave danger’ it poses not only to our clients, but all Americans. We look forward to having our day in court to fight this unconstitutional edict.”
