Defending The Republic co-files Class Action Lawsuit against …
US Coast Guard – Department of Defense – Food & Drug Admin, and Department of Homeland Security
Late Tuesday, July 25, 2022, on behalf of members of the U.S. Coast Guard, Defending the Republic – along with co-counsel Dale Saran and Simon Peter Serrano of the Silent Majority Foundation – filed a class action lawsuit against the Coast Guard, the Department of Defense, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Department of Homeland Security.
Our Coast Guard clients all have sincere religious beliefs which prevent then from receiving the mandated COVID-19 “vaccines.” Their religious rights should have been respected and they should have been allowed to continue to serve their country without the shots. Instead, they have been harassed, denied promotions, received discipline, and face imminent separation – while their “vaccinated” Coast Guard peers continue to get COVID-19 in large numbers.
This is a violation of their rights guaranteed under the First Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
In this class action, Defending the Republic has also alleged the implementation of the Coast Guard COVID-19 vaccine is unlawful, as these service members are ordered to receive unlicensed vaccines under an Emergency Use Authorization “as if” they were FDA-licensed vaccines.
We are also challenging the COVID-19 vaccine mandate itself as unlawful, and asking the Court to enjoin the Coast Guard from enforcing the vaccine mandate against all Coast Guard members who have religious objections to these “vaccines.”
