The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to hear an emergency appeal of vaccine requirements for Maine health care workers.
The high court has previously rejected a challenge to a vaccine mandate for New York City teachers. Vaccine mandates have been challenged across the country over the pandemic.
The US Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to stop a state-imposed COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers in Maine that's expected to take effect next week.
The high court declined to hear an emergency appeal of the Maine vaccine requirement. The order was handed down by Justice Stephen Breyer, a Democratic appointee assigned to the First Circuit, which covers Maine.

I think scotus has a sink installed in their courtroom now
They all do this Pontius Pilate handwashing bs now
The Tree of Liberty is in desperate need of a good watering
So when the SCOTUS refuses to even hear such a case (and behaves this way repeatedly), you’ve got to wonder why they even exist.
No, it's about procedure. It was an emergency appeal submitted to Breyer, because it's his district. His declining to accept the emergency appeal doesn't close the case.
Cowards all...people are drowning because of the swamp creatures, and the Supreme Court Justices stand there looking over the swamp with their arms folded and watch “We the People” fall back into the the water. They make me sick.
We are dealing with a compromised SUPREME COURT.
Would you elaborate on what you posted, please? What is the next step, procedurally?
This isn’t a reflection on SCOTUS, but on Justice Beyer. His district- his ruling. But he stiil is wrong.
But privacy concerning abortions is okee dokee.
Please people, the US Supreme Court is as corrupt as the DOJ, FBI, CIA, SSA, ATF, CONGRESS, ELECTIONS, FAKE NEWS.
We live under tyranny now.
Only one way out babe...
Starting to seem like every “law school” like Yale, Harvard and others bought into communism decades ago.
Trump has never once been critical about all of the people suffering from the mandates. It seems that his corrupt court picks also have no respect for the most basic human rights.
“..declined to hear an emergency appeal of the Maine vaccine requirement...”
I would say they refused to “weigh in” on the case.
Until the Entire Judiciary is fully vaccinated, do they even have Standing to hear a case??
Actually, they are agnostic on the superficial form of government. what is taught as an inevitability is one world government. Government leaders have in common, all are working toward ceding substantial parts of national control to regional (e.g, European Union) and eventually global oversight. The "national" leaders get to keep their plantations.
There seems to be a preference for democracy and popular election, but these are facades. The ruling class is closed to outsiders, but outsiders must be led to believe they have enough autonomy, that the public will not rebel against the ruling class.
There are serious questions about this, all right, but could you post what you think the FEDERAL Constitutional question is (with a citation to the Federal Constitution)?
I work in Public Health and it has always been my understanding that public health laws are enacted under the parens patriae doctrine of the STATE'S police power, which is a sovereign power of every state and is not a Federal power or matter at all, unless a State legislates AGAINST the Federal Constitution which all States must ratify to become States in the first place.
I don't think any State's public health actions violate the Federal Constitution, although there may be many violations of the Maine Constitution in what Maine is doing.
Next step procedurally is for the federal district court in Maine to decide the case on the merits. A TRO is an order by the court, before the trial.
The law in Maine does not include religious exemption to vaccine mandated by law. This change went into effect less than a month ago.
The loser in the district court will appeal to the 1st circuit. That is generally the end of the line. Loser has a right to ONE single level of appeal. Loser at appeal will petition SCOTUS to take the case, but is not entitled to a hearing by SCOTUS.
“Would you elaborate on what you posted, please? What is the next step, procedurally?”
Breyer acted alone. Next step is to apply for an emergency injunction with the full court.
