Military Service Members and Government Contractors Sue to Block Defense Department vaccine Mandates

A broad new legal challenge is underway against President Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates for U.S. service members and Defense Department contractors.

The Liberty Counsel has filed a class-action lawsuit along with a motion for a temporary restraining order and injunction against Biden, U.S. Secretary of the Department of Defense Lloyd Austin, and U.S. Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

They’re suing on behalf of members from five of the six branches of the military – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard – along with federal employees and federal civilian contractors, who argue they’ve been unlawfully mandated to get the COVID shots or face dishonorable discharge from the military or termination from employment.

The complaint was filed Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

According to Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit religious freedom law firm, they are representing 14 members of the U.S. military, including several officers, enlisted personnel as well as several federal contractors who work for the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy.
