Illinois Nurses Win Temporary Restraining Order Against Vaccine Mandate

A judge in Illinois granted a temporary restraining order to nurses who sued Riverside Healthcare over the hospital’s vaccine mandate. 

On October 13, six nurses sued Riverside Healthcare claiming the Health Care Right of Conscience Act gives them the right to refuse the vaccine. The nurses were denied religious exemption and were told if they did not get vaccinated by October 31, they’d face termination. 

Kankakee County Judge Nancy Nicholson granted the temporary restraining order until November 19, at which point she will hold a hearing on a motion for a preliminary injunction requested by the nurses. 

As reported by Just the News, the Liberty Justice Center represents the nurses. Managing Attorney Daniel Suhr celebrated the ruling. 

“Today’s ruling marks an important step toward victory for these nurses - and it sends a signal to all Americans about the importance of fighting for your rights,” he said. “Employers and government officials should take note that forcing people to violate their conscience not only is wrong, it’s illegal. No one should be forced to choose between keeping their job and sacrificing their beliefs.”
