Suit to Block Biden Vaccine Mandate Filed in 8th Circuit

Alliance seeks Stay Pending Review Order

(Fairfax, Virginia) – The Alliance for Free Citizens, a national organization dedicated to defending the constitutional liberties guaranteed to all Americans, today announced the filing of a Petition for Review in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals of the OSHA vaccine mandate for all businesses with 100 or more employees and a request for an immediate Stay Pending Review.

The Alliance for Free Citizens is representing two large North Dakota companies — DTN Staffing and Miller Insulation Company — along with their CEOs and several of their employees.

“This is an extremely important case for our nation,” said Kris Kobach, General Counsel to the Alliance. “While the Emergency Stay issued by the 5th Circuit is encouraging, we need a halt to Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandate until the issues are fully litigated and resolved. Anything less will deny liberties to Americans and will impose unbearable costs on American businesses.”

Plaintiffs in the case are DTN Staffing, Inc. Jamie Fleck, Sadie Haws, Sheriff Sharma, Wendi Johnston, Miller Insulation Company, Inc. Brad Miller, Corey Hager, Julio Hernandez Ortiz, and Aaron Janz. DTN Staffing supplies nurses throughout the upper Midwest and is a significant supplier of staff needs in the regional healthcare industry. Miller Insulation has over 500 employees and is a major employer in the Dakotas.

“Once again the Biden administration has,” said Joshua Pratt, Executive Director of the Alliance. “All of us are grateful to the brave plaintiffs who are willing to stand up to the oppressive actions of the Biden Labor Department. The Alliance is confident that our General Counsel Kris Kobach will move this vital issue aggressively to a successful conclusion on behalf of all Americans.”

The Alliance for Free Citizen’s efforts are being assisted by attorneys with America First Policies Institute. To request an interview with Kris Kobach or other Alliance spokesmen, please contact Executive Director Joshua Pratt or Kate Brown at 202-213-7051.
