A federal judge in Georgia on Tuesday temporarily halted the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors across the country.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge R. Stan Baker, an appointee of former President Trump, is the latest in a series of legal setbacks for President Biden as his administration seeks to blunt the effects of a global pandemic that has killed more than 788,000 people in the U.S.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Court acknowledges the tragic toll that the COVID-19 pandemic has wrought throughout the nation and the globe,” Baker wrote in a 28-page ruling. “However, even in times of crisis this Court must preserve the rule of law and ensure that all branches of government act within the bounds of their constitutionally granted authorities.”
According to the report, Baker’s order blocks the mandate while the case plays out in court. The judge also believes the case will determine that Biden exceeded his authority with the mandate.
The deadline for federal contractors to be fully vaccinated was set for January 18.
The lawsuit is one of many legal battle the Biden administration faces over the mandate.
The administration is also facing legal challenges over the order to enforce a vaccine mandate for all employees of companies with 100 or more people.
