Biden jab mandate for federal workers blocked in court

United States President Joe Biden's order according to which federal government workers have to get vaccinated against coronavirus or face disciplinary action, including dismissal from their jobs, was blocked by Texas federal district court Judge Jeff Brown on Friday.

Clarifying his ruling, Brown stated that the legal case is "about whether the president can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment."

"That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far," the judge added.
