Judge dismisses lawsuit against Texas hospital requiring Covid-19 vaccine from employees

A federal court in Texas on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit by 117 hospital employees who challenged the COVID-19 vaccination requirement.

In the written decision of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Judge Lynn N. Hughes said the lead plaintiff, Jennifer Bridges, a nurse and 116 other Houston Methodist Hospital employees who challenged the requirement, did not have no case.

The employees’ attorney, Jared Woodfill, responded in a statement Saturday: “This is just one battle in a larger war to protect the rights of employees not to be forced to participate in a vaccine trial as a condition of employment. “.
