Supreme Court receives appeals asking Kavanaugh to block large employer vaccine mandate

Source: CNN

(CNN)The Supreme Court Monday said it has received several appeals asking Justice Brett Kavanaugh to consider the Biden administration's requirement that large employers mandate their employees obtain a Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing.

The appeals come as the pandemic rages globally and the omicron variant takes hold over the holiday season.

Business groups, religious nonprofits and Republican-led states want to freeze a federal appeals court decision from Friday that revived the mandate while the appeals process plays out. As an alternative argument, some of the parties say they want the court to step in now and hear arguments in the case, bypassing the normal appeals process.

The legal papers are directed to Kavanaugh because he has jurisdiction over the appeals court that made the ruling. He is likely to refer the matter to the full court. The court asked for responses by December 30 to the mandate challengers' request.

He will refer the case to the other members to see if they are interested in hearing an expedited appeal. If four of them are interested then they will hear the case
