Three attorneys general, including Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch, filed a lawsuit Thursday in Louisiana in an effort to block President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors.

In the lawsuit, Fitch — along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita — claims the mandatory vaccination requirement is unlawful and unconstitutional.

“In an effort to check the box on universal vaccination, President Biden has vastly overreached his authority, putting the jobs of one-fifth of the American workforce in jeopardy and violating vital principles, including state sovereignty, the rule of law and religious liberty,” Fitch said in a news release

The civil suit, filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, names President Joe Biden and other federal officials as defendants.
