Judge Christina Ryba, a New York state Supreme Court justice in Albany County, has decided not to grant temporary restraining order that would have stopped the state’s vaccine mandate beginning Monday.
Judge Ryba may have denied the restraining order, but she granted a partial one by allowing workers to get religious exemptions.
Hogan’s argument stated that there was no COVID emergency and next week up to 90,000 healthcare workers will be fired.
Hogan explained that by handling the vaccine this way, it only throws the healthcare system into a crisis when there is no emergency.
When looking at hospital beds, ICU beds, deaths, and positive cases, the rates are all down.
The filing was not submitted until thirty minutes before the hearing was scheduled.
