Federal judge deals blow to vaccine mandate for NYC teachers
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City schools have been temporarily blocked from enforcing a vaccine mandate for its teachers and other workers by a federal appeals judge days before it was to take effect. The mandate for the the nation’s largest school system was set to go into effect Monday. But late Friday, a judge for the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a temporary injunction and referred the case to a three-judge panel an an expedited basis. Department of Education spokesperson Danielle Filson said officials are seeking a speedy resolution by the circuit court next week.
