The Washington Post reports:
A group of 117 unvaccinated staffers from Houston Methodist Hospital filed a lawsuit Friday seeking to avoid the hospital’s coronavirus vaccine mandate, saying it’s unlawful for bosses to require the shots.
The lawsuit against Houston Methodist was filed by Jared Woodfill [photo], a Houston-area attorney and conservative activist. It appears to mirror a legal strategy used by a New York-based law firm, Siri & Glimstad, that is closely aligned with one of the country’s biggest anti-vaccination organizations.
The complaint, filed in state court, says Houston Methodist’s vaccine mandate violates a set of medical ethics standards known as the Nuremberg Code, which was designed to prevent experimentation on human subjects without consent.

Former Harris County GOP chairman Jared Woodfill last appeared on JMG in March 2020 when he represented local anti-LGBT pastors in their ultimately failed lawsuit to overturn Texas lockdown rules. Before that we heard from him in February 2019 when he lost his years-long legal battle to stop Houston from providing spousal benefits to LGBT city employees.
