Case Summary

This is a case about President Biden's executive order requiring federal contractors' employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. On November 4, 2021, the state of Oklahoma, its governor, and its attorney general filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. The plaintiffs sued President Biden, the United States, and the following federal offices (or officials associated with those offices): the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force, the Federal Acquisition Reg…

This is a case about President Biden's executive order requiring federal contractors' employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. On November 4, 2021, the state of Oklahoma, its governor, and its attorney general filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. The plaintiffs sued President Biden, the United States, and the following federal offices (or officials associated with those offices): the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council, the Office of Personnel Management, the Office of Management and Budget, the General Services Administration, the Federal Protective Service, the Secret Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, and the Air Force.

Represented by the attorney general of Oklahoma and private counsel, the plaintiffs (Oklahoma) sought declaratory and injunctive relief. Oklahoma challenged the president's administrative order requiring that federal contractors mandate their employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, arguing that this requirement violated the Procurement Policy Act (40 U.S.C. §§ 101, 121), the Procurement Policy Act (41 U.S.C. § 1707(a)), the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. § 706), and the U.S. Constitution's Take Care Clause, Free Exercise Clause, Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment, Tenth Amendment, and nondelegation principle. The case was assigned to Judge Charles Goodwin.

On November 15, 2021, Oklahoma filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction. On December 8, 2021, Oklahoma withdrew its request for a temporary restraining order following the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia's issuance of a preliminary injunction in Georgia v. Biden. Concluding that the president likely exceeded his authority, the Georgia court enjoined the federal government from enforcing the vaccine mandate. Oklahoma did not, however, withdraw its motion for a preliminary injunction.

In the interest of conserving judicial resources, the defendants moved to stay the case on December 13, 2021, until and unless the Georgia injunction was stayed, vacated, or narrowed such that adjudicating the plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction would have practical significance. In September and October of 2022, the court ordered the defendants to file status reports apprising the court of any developments in the Georgia case and of the government's intent regarding the executive order. 

The court stayed the case indefinitely on December 20, 2022, holding that the plaintiffs' claims were not ripe for consideration because there was no present risk of imminent injury to the plaintiffs. It was unclear whether the government would seek to enforce the executive order's mandate in the future. The court ordered the defendants to inform the court if they received any further guidance related to the executive order. 

As of March 2023, the case is ongoing, with litigation stayed until further order of the court.
