The Buckeye Institute’s Robert Alt Responds to Vaccine Mandate Oral Arguments at SCOTUS

Jan 07, 2022

Columbus, OH – 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, issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court’s oral arguments in the vaccine mandate case.

“If OSHA’s unlawful vaccine mandate is allowed to take effect on Monday, it will catalyze predictably devastating consequences on the supply chain and impose irreparable economic harm upon companies including our clients, Phillips Manufacturing and Tower Co. and Sixarp LLC, which respectively manufacture and package goods used by consumers every day and are both vital to the supply chain. The U.S. Supreme Court should issue a stay immediately to clarify the limits of OSHA’s authority and prevent the fallout that is certain to follow.”

The Buckeye Institute’s co-counsel in the case are Patrick Strawbridge, Jeffrey M. Harris, and Daniel Shapiro at Consovoy McCarthy PLLC.
