AG Wilson, other states and several businesses, start court proceedings against OSHA vaccine mandate

(COLUMBIA, S.C) – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, along with several other states and businesses, today filed the paperwork to begin court proceedings against OSHA’s vaccine mandate for private employers with 100 or more employees.

“Unlike the Biden Administration, the Judges with whom our Petition has been filed will consider the Constitution.” Attorney General Wilson said. “The President is flouting the rule of law to engage in federal overreach at its worst. He has little regard for the constitutional liberties of our citizens.”

Attorney General Wilson joined the attorneys general of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Utah, along with six businesses, in filing the Petition for Review with the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

This is the first step in the legal challenge of the Biden administration’s vaccine rule. The court motion will be filed at a later date.
