NCLA is Challenging Covid-19 Regulations and Orders Imposed by Executive Decree

The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be a threat not only to the health and safety of Americans, but also to our way of life. Under the aegis of public safety, federal, state and local governments have violated constitutional law by implementing regulations and emergency orders by executive decree.

As elected leaders and bureaucrats have taken turns trampling civil rights under foot, NCLA has been working overtime to restore the constitutional guardrails on the Administrative State’s pandemic response.

You don’t have to do anything to “join” the class action, because the whole point of a class action is for a few plaintiffs that we do know the identities of to represent the interests of a larger number of plaintiffs whose identities we don’t yet know. NCLA has filed a class action lawsuit representing a small number of these named federal employees, but if the court certifies the class (that is, allows the class action to proceed), then our clients will represent *all* federal employees who are in the same position. The court still has to agree to this, but once that happens the class becomes certified and the results of the lawsuit will apply to anyone who is in the class.

Donate to NCLA so that we can fight against these unconstitutional mandates. We represent all of our clients pro bono, which means that we rely 100% on donations from supporters who believe in the work we are doing. Every contribution, no matter the size, makes a difference.

NCLA is suing on behalf of “all federal employees outside the uniformed services who have naturally acquired immunity to COVID and who do not wish to take the vaccine.” If you are not a federal employee, you cannot be a member of the class. If you are in the military (uniformed services), then you cannot be a member of the class. If you have not gotten an antibody test, then you cannot be a member of the class because you cannot demonstrate that you have naturally acquired immunity. So, if you are a federal employee and not a member of the military (uniformed services) and you have recovered from COVID in the past, all you need to do in order to be eligible to be a member of the class is to get an antibody (antigen) test that shows you have natural immunity. That’s it.

Not at this time. The law with regard to military personnel is different from the law for civilian federal employees and our current efforts are focused on the laws governing those civilian employees.

No. While NCLA strongly supports organizations that are fighting against the mandates on the grounds that they should offer religious exemptions, we have chosen to focus on the exemptions for those with demonstrated natural immunity. If you are interested in learning more about how vaccine mandates might violate your individual right to religious liberty, please check out the resources provided by our allies at Becket and First Liberty.

NCLA is very interested in challenging laws that require businesses to check the vaccine status of their customers. New York City put such a law in place, but it can be difficult to challenge a law like that because any business that does so paints a target on its back for retaliation by the government. We are willing to represent businesses who want to stand up to tyranny, but we will never judge any business owner who simply cannot afford to attract the ire of powerful regulators. If you or someone you know owns a business subject to such a mandate and you want to stand up for your rights and the rights of your fellow business owners, please contact NCLA using the form to the right.
