The U.S Supreme Court decided not to hear the lawsuit filed by four New York City public school teachers who got fired for refusing to get Covid-19 shots, claiming it violated their constitutional rights.
Last February, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who oversees emergency applications for the Second Circuit which includes Connecticut, New York and Vermont, rejected the request to block New York City’s vaccine mandate for teachers without comment.
The decision from the high court resulted in the termination of city employees who refused the experimental Covid-19 shot.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams fired 1,430 city employees in February including 36 police officers, 25 firemen, and 914 employees from the Department of Education.
Hard to believe someone could be worse than De Blasio.

Now, the U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear the teachers’ appeal without comment.
The U.S. Supreme Court turned away four public-school teachers who said New York City violated their constitutional rights by firing them or putting them on unpaid leave for refusing to get Covid-19 vaccinations.
The justices made no comment in rejecting the teachers’ appeal, which challenged the city’s vaccine mandate for its 148,000 employees. The same group of teachers failed last year to block the policy before it took effect. The Supreme Court has permitted Covid vaccine mandates at the state and local level even as it has curbed federal authority to impose requirements.
The teachers contended the mandate unconstitutionally prevents them from practicing their profession.
