2021-12-31 20:22:52 - New York City, United States - (PR Distribution™)

          On December 14, 2021, JFK8 – Staten Island Amazon employee Richard Thomas sued NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, and the City of New York to stop the NYC Private Sector Vaccine Mandate in the New York State Supreme Court in New York County (index# 101428/2021) in an Article 78 proceeding.


          Thomas also applied for a Temporary Restraining Order to stop the December 27, 2021 mandate, by asking the courts to stay the Vaccine Mandate for the NYC Private Sector.     

          Thomas also claimed that the Private Sector Vaccine Mandate was in violation of:  

1.         The New York City Human Rights Law (§ 8-107. Unlawful discriminatory practices)

2.         The New York State Human Rights Law (§ 296. Unlawful discriminatory practices.)

3.         Title VII of The Civil Rights Act of 1964

4.         The 1st Amendment

5.         The 4th Amendment

6.         The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act 


            Thomas tried to stop the December 27th mandate with a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), but on December 20, 2021, Justice Frank P. Nervo declined the TRO, and set a hearing date for an oral argument on March 22, 2022.
