Was It Over When The Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor?

I'm geniuinely curious: did the employees file this pro se (not sure a group can do that, come to think of it), or did some lawyer willingly take their money for this turkey? 

In his ruling, Judge Hughes called the plaintiffs' claim that currently available COVID-19 vaccines are "experimental and dangerous" an argument that is both false and irrelevant. "Texas law only protects employees from being terminated for refusing to commit an act carrying criminal penalties to the worker," Hughes wrote, adding that the "press-release style of the complaint" fails to specify what illegal acts the plaintiffs were alleged to have been asked to perform.

"Receiving a COVID-19 vaccination is not an illegal act, and it carries no criminal penalties," the judge wrote.

The judge also denounced the plaintiffs for equating the vaccine mandate to forced experimentation by the Nazis against Jewish people during the Holocaust. "Equating the injection requirement to medical experimentation in concentration camps is reprehensible," Hughes said. "Nazi doctors conducted medical experiments on victims that caused pain, mutilation, permanent disability, and in many cases, death."

Because this suit always had zero chance.*  Or rather, it had as much chance as Trump's election fraud challenges.
Come to think of it, it may have been the same lawyer; or one who learned from the example: It looks like, in the end, the lawyers and the dreaded "institutionalists," saved us: Or at least kept things from getting much, much worse.

*that NPR article answers my question:  the lawyer is vowing to appeal to the 5th Circuit.  He knows a cash cow when he sees one.


  1. If lawyers don't lose their professional standing for doing things like this, it's only going to get worse. Eventually they'll reach judges as dishonest and sleazy and nutty as they and their clients are, look at that judge comparing automatic weapons to Swiss army knives.

  2. Maybe Biden will make a generous offer on Putin's behalf of refuge in Russia for the Capitol rioters and all those who still think Trump won.
