“State Attorneys have a duty to prosecute crimes as defined in Florida law, not to pick and choose which laws to enforce based on his personal agenda,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “It is my duty to hold Florida’s elected officials to the highest standards for the people of Florida. I have the utmost trust that Judge Susan Lopez will lead the office through this transition and faithfully uphold the rule of law.”

“I have the utmost respect for our state laws and I understand the important role that the State Attorney plays in ensuring the safety of our community and the enforcement of our laws,” said Susan Lopez, State Attorney of the 13thJudicial Circuit. “I want to thank the Governor for placing his trust in me, and I promise that I will faithfully execute the duties of this office.”

The Governor has the authority under the Florida Constitution to suspend state officials for reasons of misfeasance, malfeasance, neglect of duty, drunkenness, incompetence, permanent inability to perform official duties, or commission of a felony. The Governor has further authority to fill that office by appointment for the duration of the suspension.

Susan Lopez was appointed by Governor DeSantis to serve as a judge on the Hillsborough County Court in 2021. She previously served as Assistant State Attorney of the 13th Judicial Circuit for more than 15 years and as Staff Attorney of the Second District Court of Appeal. She received her bachelor’s degree from Middlebury College and her law degree from Suffolk University. She is a long-time resident of Tampa and has been involved in the Hillsborough community through a variety of organizations for many years.

$10.3 Million Settlement Reached in First COVID Vaccine Mandate Class Action Suit Involving Healthcare Workers

$10.3 Million Settlement Reached in First COVID Vaccine Mandate Class Action Suit Involving Healthcare Workers

Chicago’s NorthShore University HealthSystem today agreed to a $10.3 million settlement in the nation’s first classwide lawsuit for healthcare workers over a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

July 29, 2022 | By Liberty Council | The Defender

Today, Liberty Counsel settled the nation’s first classwide lawsuit for healthcare workers over a COVID shot mandate, for more than $10.3 million.

The class action settlement against NorthShore University HealthSystem is on behalf of more than 500 current and former healthcare workers who were unlawfully discriminated against and denied religious exemptions from the COVID shot mandate.

The agreed-upon settlement was filed today in the federal Northern District Court of Illinois.

As a result of the settlement, NorthShore will pay $10,337,500 to compensate these healthcare employees who were victims of religious discrimination, and who were punished for their religious beliefs against taking an injection associated with aborted fetal cells.

This is a historic, first-of-its-kind class action settlement against a private employer who unlawfully denied hundreds of religious exemption requests to COVID-19 shots.

The settlement must be approved by the federal District Court.

Employees of NorthShore who were denied religious exemptions will receive notice of the settlement, and will have an opportunity to comment, object, request to opt out or submit a claim form for payment out of the settlement fund, all in accordance with deadlines that will be set by the court.

As part of the settlement agreement, NorthShore will also change its unlawful “no religious accommodations” policy to make it consistent with the law, and to provide religious accommodations in every position across its numerous facilities.

No position in any NorthShore facility will be considered off limits to unvaccinated employees with approved religious exemptions.

In addition, employees who were terminated because of their religious refusal of the COVID shots will be eligible for rehire if they apply within 90 days of the final settlement approved by the court, and they will retain their previous seniority level.

The amount of individual payments from the settlement fund will depend on how many valid and timely claim forms are submitted during the claims process.

If the settlement is approved by the court and all or nearly all of the affected employees file valid and timely claims, it is estimated that employees who were terminated or resigned because of their religious refusal of a COVID shot will receive approximately $25,000 each, and employees who were forced to accept a COVID shot against their religious beliefs to keep their jobs will receive approximately $3,000 each.

The 13 healthcare workers who are lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit will receive an additional approximate payment of $20,000 each for their important role in bringing this lawsuit and representing the class of NorthShore healthcare workers.

Liberty Counsel will receive 20% of the settlement sum, which equals $2,061,500, as payment for the significant attorney’s fees and costs it has required to undertake to sue NorthShore and hold it accountable for its actions. This amount is far less than the typical 33% usually requested by attorneys in class action litigation.

In October 2021, Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to NorthShore on behalf of numerous healthcare workers who had sincere religious objections to NorthShore’s “Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.”

If NorthShore had agreed then to follow the law and grant religious exemptions, the matter would have been quickly resolved and it would have cost it nothing.

But, when NorthShore refused to follow the law, and instead denied all religious exemption and accommodation requests for employees working in its facilities, Liberty Counsel filed a class action lawsuit, along with a motion for a temporary restraining order and injunction.

Liberty Counsel Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Litigation Counsel Horatio G. Mihet said:

“We are very pleased with the historic, $10 million settlement achieved in our class action lawsuit against NorthShore University HealthSystem.

“The drastic policy change and substantial monetary relief required by the settlement will bring a strong measure of justice to NorthShore’s employees who were callously forced to choose between their conscience and their jobs.

“This settlement should also serve as a strong warning to employers across the nation that they cannot refuse to accommodate those with sincere religious objections to forced vaccination mandates.”

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said:

“This classwide settlement providing compensation and the opportunity to return to work is the first of its kind in the nation involving COVID shot mandates. This settlement should be a wake-up call to every employer that did not accommodate or exempt employees who opposed the COVID shots for religious reasons.

“Let this case be a warning to employers that violated Title VII. It is especially significant and gratifying that this first classwide COVID settlement protects health care workers. Health care workers are heroes who daily give their lives to protect and treat their patients. They are needed now more than ever.”

Court: Air Force Cannot Discharge Troops Who Filed for Religious Exemptions from Vaccine Mandate

Court: Air Force Cannot Discharge Troops Who Filed for Religious Exemptions from Vaccine Mandate

July 14, 2022 | By Kristina Wong | Breitbart

A District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on Thursday morning issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting the Air Force from enforcing the vaccine mandate against any airman who has filed a request for a religious accommodation, according to court documents.

Judge Matthew W. McFarland granted a motion brought by airmen to extend a court order from March 31 that prohibited the Air Force from disciplining or discharging plaintiffs fighting the mandate based on their religious beliefs to all airmen who filed religious accommodation requests as a “class.”

The court order is a temporary restraining order (TRO), which is an emergency measure to preserve the status quo for up to 14 days while the judge is considering granting a preliminary injunction (PI), which would in turn last through the entire litigation process.

If the judge continues to believe that the mandate is illegal, then the court will convert the TRO to a PI at the end of that window, effectively protecting all of these service members while the Biden administration appeals the decision to the Sixth Circuit appellate court.

“For the reasons, that follow, Plaintiffs have satisfied the Rule 23(a) prerequisites, as well as Rule 23(b)(1)(a) and Rule 23(b)(2). Thus, class certification is warranted,” the court order said.

It further said: “Because the Plaintiffs have satisfied the necessary Rule 23 requirements, the Court will certify the following class:

All active-duty and active reserve members of the United States Air Force and Space Force, including but not limited to Air Force Academy Cadets, Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) Cadets, Members of the Air Force Reserve Command, and any Airman who has sworn or affirmed the United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office and is currently under command and could be deployed, who: (i) submitted a religious accommodation request to the Air Force from the Air Force’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement, where the request was submitted or was pending, from September 1, 2021 to the present; (ii) were confirmed as having had a sincerely held religious belief by or through Air Force Chaplains; and (iii) either had their requested accommodation denied or have not had action on that request.”

 

The court has ordered the Air Force to file a supplemental brief no more than 10 pages in length and no later than July 21, 2022, identifying why the court should not grant a class-wide preliminary injunction.

 

The case is Doster v. Kendall, No. 1:22-cv-84 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.

Great News! New York Gov. Hochul’s Covid Concentration Camp regulation struck down by Court!

Great News! New York Gov. Hochul’s Covid Concentration Camp regulation struck down by Court!

July 12, 2022 | By Children’s Health Defense New York Chapter | Uniting NYS

Yesterday afternoon a New York State Superior Court Judge struck down a regulation issued by Governor Kathy Hochul earlier this year that gave herself sweeping new powers to arrest and detain indefinitely anybody suspected of exposure to Covid or any other communicable disease.

“This is a great victory for the rule of law, for the Constitution, and for We the People.  New Yorkers can now rest easy that they will not be subjected to illegal forced isolation and quarantine by unelected bureaucrats in the Executive Branch of government.” Said Bobbie Ann Cox, the attorney who filed and argued the suit for Uniting NYS and a group of Republican legislators. “The Executive Branch has rightfully been put back into their lane.  They cannot make or alter laws… only the Legislative Branch can do that.”

Judge Ronald Ploetz of Cattauragas County noted in his decision that New York has a longstanding law, Public Health Law (PHL) 2120,  governing how people could be quarantined to prevent transmission of communicable disease.  Current New York  law allows physicians and public health officers to report people known to have a communicable disease to health authorities who can then obtain a court order by submitting proof to a judge that a quarantine is necessary, and the suspected carrier would have legal counsel, all of which are required by both the United States and New York Constitutions. Only then could the Court order the infected person to be involuntarily quarantined until the Chief Medical Officer of the hospital or quarantining institution determines the person was no longer infectious.

Hochul’s regulation allowed public health officers to arrest people suspected of having been exposed to a communicable disease, which in the age of Covid means everybody, with no need for proof of infection, no hearing, no magistrate, and no legal counsel for the accused. The accused could be held for an indefinite period at the health department’s discretion since actual infection by a disease was not required for arrest and detainment.

Judge Ploetz wrote in his decision, “The Commissioner (of the New York State Department of Health)  has unfettered discretion to issue a quarantine or isolation for anyone, even if there is no evidence that person is infected or a carrier of the disease. Further, the Commissioner sets the terms, duration, and location of the detention, not an independent magistrate as required by PHL $ 2120.”

The legislators joining the suit include State Senator George Borello, Assemblymember Mike Lawler, and Assemblymember Chris Tague. New York Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay and Assemblymember Andy Goodell submitted an amicus brief.

Legislation, mostly recently called Assembly bill A416, giving the Governor similar powers languished for years in the Assembly until the bill’s sponsor withdrew the proposal at the end of 2021 after a barrage of negative national publicity. Hochul immediately proposed new regulations that gave herself even more power to arrest and detain than in A 416.

As always, an appeal by the State should be expected. Please help Bobbie Ann Cox and Uniting NYS with Hochul’s inevitable appeal here: https://give.cornerstone.cc/coxlawyers
