SCOTUS Justice Sotomayor Declines to Block New York City COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Monday denied a request by a New York City police detective to overturn the city’s unconstitutional mandate that all municipal workers get the Covid-19 jab.

“Sotomayor made no comment, denying the emergency request from Anthony Marciano without asking the city to file a brief in response. Sotomayor is the justice assigned to handle emergency matters from New York,” according to Bloomberg.

“Marciano said in court papers that the city denied his bid for a religious exemption and that he expects officials to reject his appeal as well. He said New York has denied 99% of exemption requests,” the outlet reported.

According to Reuters, 1,430 municipal employees were fired in February for failing to comply with the vaccine mandate.

It can be recalled that last year, Sotomayor decided not to suspend New York City’s requirement that all Department of Education employees get a COVID-19 vaccine.

“New York City’s 150,000 school employees had until 5 p.m. Oct. 1 to show proof of vaccination or to obtain a religious or medical exemption. If they did not, the city could remove them from the payrolls. In denying the petition, Sotomayor did not refer the issue to the full court or ask for a response from New York City—a sign the court didn’t believe the challenge was compelling,” according to Washington Post.

As a result, dozens of New York City public school teachers were placed on unpaid leave last April for allegedly using a fake Covid-19vaccine card.

The New York City Department of Education (DOE) has agreed to allow 82 teachers suspected of submitting fake COVID-19 vaccination cards back on the payroll pending an internal review.

Arguably, Sotomayor is the least informed SCOTUS justice regarding Covid-19.

During oral arguments early this year, Justice Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that over 100,000 children were in serious condition because of Covid, as reported by The Gateway Pundit.

“Many are on ventilators,” Sotomayor said.

Walensky refuted Sotomayor during an interview with Bret Bair on Fox News Sunday.

“The number’s not 100,000. It’s roughly 3,500 in hospitals now?” Bret Bair asked.

“Yes,” Walensky replied.
