A Georgia District Court Enjoins the Government from Enforcing the Federal Contractor Vaccine Mandate Nationwide

Dec.07.2021

Earlier today, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia issued a preliminary nationwide injunction of the contractor vaccine mandate in Executive Order 14042.  This injunction will bar the Government “from enforcing the vaccine mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in all covered contracts in any state or territory of the United States of America” while the case is pending or until another order is issued. 

This injunction is similar to the one issued last week by the Eastern District of Kentucky enjoining the Executive Order in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio.  Like Kentucky district court, the Georgia district court found that Executive Order 14042 exceeded the President’s authority under the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act.

We are continuing to watch the implementation of Executive Order 14042 and the nationwide challenges to it.
