11 State AGs Sue Over Mandate For Large Companies

The New York Times reports:

The attorneys general in 11 states filed a lawsuit on Friday in an effort to prevent the Biden administration from requiring large companies to mandate coronavirus vaccinations, the latest sign of growing pushback against the federal government’s biggest effort yet to enlist private businesses in combating the virus.

“This mandate is unconstitutional, unlawful, and unwise,” the court filing says. Attorney General Eric Schmitt [photo] of Missouri led the group that brought the lawsuit, which was joined by private and nonprofit groups.

The lawsuit on Friday was filed in U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit by Missouri and was joined by Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. The office of Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, a Democrat, also joined in the lawsuit.
