Justice Amy Coney Barrett declines to block Indiana University’s vaccine mandate 08/13/2021

Justice Amy Coney Barrett declines to block Indiana University’s vaccine mandate

Last week, we blogged about a challenge to an Indiana University's requirement that enrolled students must be vaccinated against COVID-19. An appellate court ruled that the school's mandate did not violate the Constitution. The students challenging the requirement appealed to the United States Supreme Court and asked the Court to issue an emergency order blocking the school's rule. Yesterday, Justice Amy Coney Barrett denied the students' request for the emergency order, meaning the school's vaccine mandate remains effective.
