Press release from Childers Law, LLC

After informing the State of Florida last week that it was dropping its vaccine requirement for employees, the City filed a “motion for reconsideration” this week asking the court to reverse its injunction of the mandate. In its Motion, the City re-raised a number of arguments that it had already made at the hearing and asked the Court to vacate, or cancel, the injunction. Today, the employees filed their response, denying that there are any grounds to reconsider and vacate the injunction.

Attorney Jeff Childers represents the City’s employees in the lawsuit. After filing the employees‘ response, he said, “There was nothing new or surprising in the City’s motion to reconsider the injunction. We responded to it appropriately, reiterating and expanding on our arguments from the hearing.“

On Wednesday, September 22, the Court enjoined the City’s vaccine mandate and ordered the City not to discipline or fire any employees on account of the policy. The crux of the Court’s order was based on the Florida Constitution’s right to privacy, which includes a right to refuse unwanted medical treatments. The City has argued that its employees have no legitimate expectation of privacy when they’re at work.

Once the parties have set a hearing on the City’s motion, the Court will make a decision about the City’s request.

City of Gainesville’s Motion for Reconsideration

Amended Response to the City’s Motion for Reconsideration

  • Ha ha. The city has argued that City employees should have no legitimate expectation of privacy while at work! Creepy!

    • In the past year, PO and the other two White, Woke Musketeers ( Ward and Hayes) have argued: Gainesville should intentionally violate state law, should sue the state, should again raise utility rates 7% even though they are already the highest in FL, should terminate all charter offices to get a “re-set”, should raise ridiculously high property taxes even more, should require all landlords to get permits and make improvements to old structures equivalent to new buildings- thus driving up rents and reducing low price rentals even more, should ignore professional legal investigators who found the City Mgr discriminated against two women and should be fired, that against state law and against employee unions should require all employees to be vaccinated, should un-require all employees to be vaccinated, should spend millions of dollars on worthless free public wi-fi that won’t be available for years and will be 1/3 as good as affordable wi-fi already available, on and on. Need one say more? Demand these failures resign know!

  • DO they remember Smallpox, Polio, Yellow Fever, Measles, Chickenpox, Mumps, etc.

      • Good one Ernesto! George is a double masking commie control
        Freak…Hey George, do us all a favor and load up on a bunch of
        Flu shots & boosters, will ya? We should never
        Have ruined the US$ and the US economy for
        A global commie fake pandemic that has a 99.8%
        Survival rate…stop with the fear mongering already.
        People are wising up to the “big lie”…

    • Yeah, I had the mumps when I was a kid… I got it
      After the measle, mumps, polio shot…I either contracted
      It from the shot or from the school water fountain…
      It was no big deal…a fever, some swollen glands…we shouldn’t change all of society just for that. My brother
      Got the chicken pox, no big deal…there were 3 of us
      In 1 bedroom. No one else in our family got the mumps
      Or chickenpox, etc. We have immune systems. They’re
      There for a reason. We are constantly fighting some
      Germ or flu bug…this Covid shot is an insidious plan…
      Shwab from the IMF said something like “the pandemic
      Was the perfect cover to implement the great reset”.
      The great reset website says, “the lockdowns resulted
      In a 7% reduction in CO2 emissions”…”and we need
      To do it to 2030 to avoid climate change disasters”…
      It’s a big lie propaganda scam to usher in the green
      New deal…they want to use medical tyranny to
      Round you up, give you a shot, put you in a database,
      Get rid of cash, destroy the US $, destroy the US
      Constitution, take away the guns, contact trace
      You, redistribute the wealth, destroy the nuclear
      Family, if you don’t obey, you cannot function in
      Commerce…you know, Mark of the beast…that ol’
      Chesnut…

    • By George…Those have been eradicated thanks to vaccines that history has shown to be of greater efficacy than the current Covid offerings. How’s your vaccination working for you? Still masking up?

      Keep believing…
