Cook County Judge Blocks Vaccine Mandate for City Workers

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is going to have to wait just a bit longer to fire city employees.

Lightfoot had celebrated a previous ruling, but her party got rained on at the last second.

Cook County Judge Raymond Mitchell has issued a temporary order that will block the city from requiring all Chicago police officers from being vaccinated by December 31, 2021.

Sorry, Lori

Lightfoot tried to turn lemons into lemonade after the ruling was handed down, but she clearly seemed to misunderstand the ruling.

The Democrat mayor seemed only to hear the first part of the ruling, which stated, “The City’s counsel suggested at oral argument that it might be possible to arbitrate the grievances before December 31, 2021, but that is a matter for the parties to resolve among themselves.

“So, the only remedy left to protect the unions’ right to meaningful arbitration is to stay in compliance with the December 31 vaccination requirement until such time as the arbitration is complete.”

Judge Mitchell continued, basically taking the side of the union.

He stated that” ‘Obey now, grieve later’ is not possible.

“If every union member complied and was vaccinated by December 31, they would have no grievance to pursue and there would be no remedy an arbitrator could award.

“An award of back pay or reinstatement cannot undo a vaccine. Nothing can.”

This was Lightfoot’s reaction to the ruling, which, as you will hear, so really only heard what she wanted to hear…

This issue is clearly not resolved in favor of either side, but the language used by Mitchell seems to make it sound as though he is leaning towards siding with the union.

We will continue to monitor the case and update as necessary.

  1. So, IF YOU GIVE IN TO BIDEN’S ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL VAX MANDATES YOU HAVE NO RECOURSE TO SUE AFTER THE FACT?! This is certainly NOT what we have seen in countless court findings in the past. Currently we have 16 States filing against the “VAX MANDATES” yet SCOTUS feels there is NO HURRY TO HEAR THE ARGUMENTS! “JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED”! SCOTUS MUST HEAR THE VOICE OF THE CITIZENS, NOW!

    1. SCOTUS is full of nothing but sniveling cowards that can only kick the can down the road !!!! WHAT PART OF “UNCONSTITUTIONAL” DON’T THESE COWARDLY FOOLS UNDERSTAND !!!! Maybe it’s time for “WE THE PEOPLE” to explain things to these IDIOTS, IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS !!!! SCOTUS IS MADE UP OF USELESS PIECES OF HUMAN EXCREMENT, EVERY ONE !!!! WHO COULD EXPECT ANYTHING MORE FROM A USELESS GROUP OF DAM LAWYERS !!!

      1. Until ‘WE THE PEOPLE” start putting some of these traitors in their graves…NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE! imho

  2. It Simply Amazes Me……How – Totally S_T_U_P_I_D …..that Mayor Lightfoot Really is…..Here is a partial quote in the Article: ” but she clearly seemed to misunderstand the ruling.” Goes to show You that she can’t even understand
    a Simple Ruling from a Judge…….AND SHE IS THE MAYOR OF CHICAGO…??? No Wonder they have Problems and Issues in that city…..

    1. Good political companion for mr biden. Neither, it seems, is capable of understanding any law or ruling that does not give them the power to do anything they choose.

    2. I left Illinois because of her stupidity. She just enjoyed the riots and murder and destruction of white family homes and business’s of both races. She was two thirds of Chicago’s problems playing blind and deaf. Good-by and may god forgive you.

    1. Not ONLY that WE don’t want Mandates, that WE WILL NOT HAVE MANDATES, NO MATTER WHAT ANYBODY SAYS, PERIOD !!! # Let’s go Brandon !!!! # fjb !!!

    1. Chicago deserves everything that it’s getting, THEY ELECTED THIS PIECE OF HUMAN EXCREMENT !!!!

  3. Finally the people in Chicago are waking up. I can not imagine what normal person would vote for that horrible creature from the deep lagoon.

  4. I like reading articles about how stupid she is, but do they always have to show a picture of her? Absolutely ruins my lunch & dinner.

  5. Tree swinging Beetlejuice , needs to just grab her dyke , a backpack full of bannanas ,,,, and retire to the forest !!!

  6. What the police in Chicago need to do is walk off the job for a week and call the city a sanctuary for crime. I am 77 and can’t remember when Chicago was not a crime town and the one that stands out is mayor Daly. The mob has a good foothold on the city and they are not letting it go. Of course having a racist idiot for mayor is helping.

  7. chicago should be real proud they showed that a simian can be trained and elected mayor. the only problem is the results are real bad.

  8. A little bit of good news glad to hear that a judge has reigned in some of the garbage

  9. There is NO WAY my family and I will EVER take the jab AND we will have 33 people over for Christmas and will simply DEFY Fido’s, I mean Fauci’s family get together thingy, we, won’t kiss anyone’s behind! Lightfool is worthless! I find it hard to believe the people of Chicago would even elect a piece of crap like her! She reminds me of cousin Itt on the Addams family!
