Health care workers see VICTORY after New York Supreme Court strikes down covid jab mandate

• by Ethan Huff

The landmark ruling, which was issued on Friday the 13th, came from state Supreme Court Judge Gerard Neri, who declared that the statewide covid jab mandate for medical staff in New York is "null, void, and of no effect."

The court as a whole ruled that Hochul and state Department of Health bureaucrats grossly overstepped the bounds of their authority by imposing a covid injection mandate on health care workers – sidestepping the state legislature in the process.

Neri added in his post-ruling statement that Hochul's mandate was "arbitrary and capricious," further citing evidence that covid jabs do not even work to stop the spread of the alleged virus – not that the injection's effectiveness or ineffectiveness is any matter when it comes to one's freedom to just say no to drugs of any kind.

"In true Orwellian fashion, the Respondents acknowledge then-current COVID-19 shots do not prevent transmission," Neri wrote, citing a Summary of Assessment of Public Comment that was entered as evidence in the case.
