The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) has reported that it expects a decision on its lawsuit against the federal vaccine mandate soon.

The group expects a federal judge to rule on their request for a national freeze on the vaccine mandate for federal contractors before the freeze expires on Oct. 18.

According to AGC:

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas has positioned itself to enter a ruling on AGC’s long-standing request for an injunction that would protect all AGC members — if not all federal contractors — prior to the enforcement of the COVID-19 – Vaccination order of the federal contractor would protect. The judge has asked the US Department of Justice by September 23 and AGC by September 30 to provide briefs on the motion.

That briefing schedule suggests the judge plans to rule before the existing statewide stay of mandate expires on Oct. 18, according to a decision by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Keep in mind that in this case, the Eleventh Circuit upheld the injunction but limited its scope only to the plaintiffs in the case.
