A New York federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked the state’s vaccine mandate for medical workers.
U.S. District Judge David Hurd issued an order temporarily barring the state’s Department of Health from enforcing or otherwise requiring compliance with the vaccine mandate since it does not grant religious exemptions.
The article goes on to state the following:
A hearing for a preliminary injunction is slated for Sept. 22.
The ruling comes as a group of 17 medical workers filed a lawsuit against the state over the mandate, claiming it violates the free exercise clause of the First Amendment, and the the Fourteenth Amendment, which guarantees equal protections.
The compaint also argues that the mandate violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employment discrimination based on factors like religion, gender, race, and national origin.
Then-Governor Andrew Cuomo announced in August that all healthcare workers in hospitals and long-term care facilities must be vaccinated by Sept. 27.
