Nebraska Supreme Court Dismisses Challenge Of Creighton University COVID Vaccine Mandate

475 views

      The Nebraska Supreme Court has dismissed, on technical grounds, an appeal by ten Creighton University students who went to court last year for exemptions from the school’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

       The students argued that getting the shots would violate their religious beliefs against abortion, but a district judge denied their request for a temporary injunction to block Creighton’s requirement that all students get the COVID-19 vaccination in order to attend the school. 

     The ruling by the state’s highest court doesn’t have the power to overrule the district judge, citing its 150-year stance that orders on temporary injunction motions are not appealable. 

      The 10 students seeking the injunction said they had religious objections to the vaccines because they “were developed and/or tested using abortion-derived fetal cell lines.”
