Judge Throws Out Texas Hospital Workers’ Vaccine Mandate Lawsuit

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by more than 100 Houston, TX hospital workers who objected to a mandate to take a COVID-19 vaccine or risk being fired. Houston Methodist Hospital which owns and operates eight hospitals in the area told employees they had until June 7th to receive the vaccine or they would be suspended or fired.

Last week, the HMH suspended more than 150 employees without pay. However, 117 employees filed a lawsuit against the mandate alleging the vaccine is “experimental and dangerous” which U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes of Houston ruled was false.

According to The Daily Wire:

“Bridges can freely choose to accept or refuse a COVID-19 vaccine; however, if she refuses, she will simply need to work somewhere else,” Hughes wrote.

“If a worker refuses an assignment, changed office, earlier start time, or other directive, he may be properly fired. Every employment includes limits on the worker’s behavior in exchange for remuneration. That is all part of the bargain,” the judge said.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Jared Woodfill, disagreed and vowed to file an appeal. “All of my clients continue to be committed to fighting this unjust policy,” Woodfill said in a statement.

“What is shocking is that many of my clients were on the front line treating COVID-positive patients at Texas Methodist Hospital during the height of the pandemic. As a result, many of them contracted COVID-19. As a thank you for their service and sacrifice, Methodist Hospital awards them a pink slip and sentences them to bankruptcy,” Woodfill said.

The plaintiffs noted that the hospital is requiring employees to receive a vaccine that hasn’t been fully approved by the FDA and also cited the Nuremberg Code, which “bans forced medical experimentations, again in effect arguing that the vaccine is experimental and potentially unsafe.”

Wonder how much it set back the owners of the Hospital ? Watch how many illegals step into their jobs.

Everyone should be allowed to choose if they want the vaccine. In fact if the person has already contracted Covid, the vaccine is not necessary has they already have the antibodies in their system! I am shocked at Texas Methodist Hospital. My Grandparents both were patients at the end of their lives and the nurses were top notch. They even sang hymns with us when it was close to the end and my grandparents’ wanted hymns sung. It was a wonderfully touching moment that I won’t ever forget and most of it was the nurses who helped us through it. Shame on the administration for forcing this vaccine on them!!!

That hospital will suffer for their idiotic mandate, and should. These workers will easily find jobs at another hospital that will love to have them.

If my employer mandates that I must get vaccinated then I will quit. I suggest that if enough hospital employees ban together and refuse to take the vaccine the hospital will back down. They just can not go down to the street corner and find more doctors.

Is the hospital adhering to NAZISM? It seems.

For those who in the future get a bad reaction or death due to COVID injection because of being forced. to take one (just like what this Methodist Hospital did), sue them for murder, and a very big compensation that will make the hospital bankrupt. Include the liberal judge as wee. Sue them for the crime against humanity.
