A New York Supreme Court Judge in Staten Island struck-down the city’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate on workers, demanding all employees must be reinstated with back-pay.
“It is time for the City of New York to do what is right and what is just,” Staten Island Supreme Court Justice Ralph Porzio wrote in a decision made public Tuesday.
“The vaccination mandate for City employees was not just about safety and public health; it was about compliance,” Porzio wrote.
“If it was about safety and public health, unvaccinated workers would have been placed on leave the moment the order was issued. If it was about safety and public health, the Health Commissioner would have issued city-wide mandates for all residents.”
