The College Fix just published an article about our SCU lawsuit! We are grateful to The College Fix for spreading awareness about SCU’s egregious policy.

One Harvard-trained doctor calls policy ‘coercive’ and ‘arbitrary’

A group of medical freedom experts and students are challenging aspects of Santa Clara University’s ongoing COVID-19 vaccine mandate, which includes requiring incoming freshmen to receive the shot. They have filed an appeal that alleges the policy is “ruthlessly enforced.”

It was filed in June after a 2022 lawsuit against the policy was dismissed by the courts.

The appeal lists two SCU students and the Free Now Foundation, an organization involved in multiple vaccine lawsuits, as appellants. One of the student plaintiffs was initially denied a medical exemption from the university’s mandatory booster policy even though she had a severe reaction to her first COVID vaccine and her doctors supported her exemption request.

Attorney Rita Barnett-Rose said she and her clients seek to address alleged harms done to students by a hyper-enforced mandate, and that the complaint also argues there is an unethical relationship between SCU’s campus physician and local health authorities.

An oral argument could be set before the year’s end, she told the The College Fix in a recent telephone interview.

Currently about 100 universities — many of which are in California — continue to require COVID vaccination as a condition of enrollment, sometimes with little accommodation for those seeking religious or medical exemptions, said Lucia Sinatra, co-founder of the medical freedom organization No College Mandates.

However, Sinatra said in a recent telephone interview with The College Fix that she believes Santa Clara University, a private Jesuit institution located in Northern California’s Santa Clara County, known for its aggressive enforcement of COVID mitigation policies during the pandemic, is one of the most “abhorrent” and “egregious” of these institutions.

In the spring of 2021, SCU’s then acting president, Lisa Kloppenberg, announced a vaccine mandate for the fall. Shortly before Christmas that year, a trio of SCU administrators, including acting provosts Ed Ryan and Kate Morris, notified students of a booster requirement.
