Schmidt Obtains New Mandate Injunction


A federal court on Monday morning blocked a second of the Biden administration's federal vaccine mandates. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri today placed a temporary injunction on the mandate from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that required nearly all health care employees, volunteers, and third-party contractors to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said this particular mandate could be the most damaging of the three mandates.



The injunction is the second Schmidt has obtained blocking a Biden administration vaccine mandate. A different federal court has stayed the OSHA mandate that applied to private employers with more than 100 employees. A third lawsuit filed by Schmidt challenges the mandate for federal contractors and is scheduled for a hearing Friday on the state’s request for a preliminary injunction.
