On February 18, 2022, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit dismissed challenges to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s vaccine mandate as moot after OSHA withdrew the emergency temporary standard. This was a victory for WLF, which filed an amicus brief when the case was before the U.S. Supreme Court. As WLF’s brief showed, the emergency temporary standard would have harmed our nation’s economy. Therefore, a stay of the mandate was in the public interest. WLF’s brief also explained why OSHA acted without statutory authorization. So the Applicants were likely to succeed on their challenge.
