The Buckeye Institute Celebrates HUGE Victory in Vaccine Mandate Case

Jan 13, 2022

Columbus, OH – The Buckeye Institute celebrated a victory in its case—Phillips v. OSHA—challenging the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate. The Supreme Court of the United States issued an emergency stay halting the enforcement of the unlawful Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) mandate.

“In issuing an emergency stay, the U.S. Supreme Court has protected not just our clients who filed suit in this case, but all of the businesses, workers, and communities across the country who would have suffered—and will suffer—significant economic harm if OSHA’s unlawful vaccine mandate were allowed to be enforced,” said Robert Alt, president and chief executive officer of The Buckeye Institute and a lead attorney representing Phillips Manufacturing & Tower Company and Sixarp LLC against the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) vaccine mandate. “While this case is far from over, today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling gives business owners and workers some measure of certainty that they will not be forced to implement a costly vaccine mandate that violates numerous constitutional principles and laws.”

The Buckeye Institute was the first to complete filing with the U.S. Supreme Court requesting an emergency stay of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate—Buckeye filed its hard copy materials less than an hour after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit’s decision came down granting the government’s request to dissolve the existing administrative stay. Buckeye’s co-counsel in the case are Patrick Strawbridge, Jeffrey M. Harris, and Daniel Shapiro at Consovoy McCarthy PLLC.
