Lawsuit asks to stop University of Cincinnati COVID-19 vaccine mandate | #students | #parents


Four University of Cincinnati students have filed a lawsuit claiming the university’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate is discriminatory and are seeking to halt the rule.

The lawsuit, filed last month in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court, argues the mandate violates multiple state laws, as well as the Ohio Constitution by infringing on students’ rights to refuse medical treatment.

Benjamin Lipp, Danielle Seymore, Katelyn Verbarg and Nicholai Lekson are the students who brought the suit against UC, according to court documents. They’re asking the court to declare the mandate void and issue an injunction prohibiting UC officials from enforcing it.

UC implemented its vaccine mandate in September following the U.S. Food and Drug administration giving full approval to the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine and in response to a rising number of COVID-19 cases.
