Federal judge denies Arizona AG Brnovich’s request to halt Biden vaccine mandate

Source: The Arizona Republic

“A federal judge has refused to halt President Joe Biden’s vaccination orders for federal workers and contractors as Arizona Attorney General and Senate candidate Mark Brnovich asked. Biden issued executive orders in September requiring COVID-19 vaccines for employees at federal agencies and federal contractors. Brnovich, who is running for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate race next year, was hopeful a judge would issue a restraining order and injunction to prevent the rules from taking effect, though legal experts had said the president’s rules were legally sound. But U.S. District Court Judge Michael Liburdi on Wednesday denied the request, though he will allow the Brnovich to present new legal arguments in a new complaint to be filed by Nov. 19, according to the order.” (11/11/21)
