Justice Amy Barrett denies appeal from Indiana University students fighting COVID-19 vaccine mandate

Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett denied an appeal from students at Indiana University to block the school’s vaccine mandate.

Barrett, who has jurisdiction over the appeals court involved in the case, denied the students request for an injunction against Indiana University’s vaccine mandate on her own without consulting other colleagues on the court and without hearing from the school.

Indiana University told students and employees that they are required to be vaccinated by the start of the fall term on August 23. Students who don’t comply will have their registration canceled, and employees who don’t comply will lose their jobs.

A three-judge federal appeals court panel, including two judges appointed by former President Donald Trump, was one of two lower courts to side with Indiana University and allow it to require vaccinations. The plan announced in May requires roughly 90,000 students and 40,000 employees on seven campuses to receive COVID-19 vaccinations for the fall semester. – READ MORE


  1. So disappointed in her but I did always wonder why she pretty much slid right through the process fairly easily. Another puppet in an important position who is against the people even kids. I remember her beautiful daughters on tv, what a joke. I like to see her bank balance these days.

    1. She’s a total disaster. So is Kavanaugh. Quite clear “the machine” has dirt on the two of them. We have nobody to blame but Trunp for not doing enough research on them. I think they all need periodic polygraphs to determine if they’ve been compromised.

  2. The Appellate Court reviews decisions made by the lower court and can reverse, in whole or in part, the final judgement of the lower courts. For whatever reason, Judge Barrett believes that the judgement was correct, thus her ruling. That said, mandating any experimental therapy in order to attend school or retain employment is frightening.
