Cincinnati, OH — Former Michigan State University employees are expected to appear before the U.S. Court of Appeals over the school's COVID-19 vaccine mandate Wednesday.
Jeanna Norris, Kraig Ehm, and D’Ann Rohrer, were current employees who were fired for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine, according to the New Civil Liberties Alliance., a non-profit civil rights organization.
The group is challenging the school's vaccination policy, saying it violates their constitutional right to bodily autonomy.
The university's attorney argues there is no reason to believe the policy is based on anything but the best science available, NCLA said.
A federal judge will hear oral arguments on the case in Cincinnati, OH.
