September, 2023 Update
This is our college student vaccine mandate lawsuit. On June 14, 2023, FNF attorneys filed our opening brief for the appeal in this lawsuit against SCU’s illegal and ongoing student COVID jab mandate. On September 13, 2022, Santa Clara superior court Judge Christopher Rudy, a graduate of defendant Santa Clara University’s (SCU) own law school, dismissed our lawsuit against SCU without leave to amend. Dismissing a complaint without giving any opportunity to amend a single claim is extremely unusual for a trial court, as the standard a judge must apply on a dismissal motion is deferential to the plaintiffs/petitioners. FNF’s opening brief argues that Judge Rudy abused his discretion in not properly applying that standard, in adopting the arguments of the defendants/respondents, and in making findings of fact that are reserved for a jury. This college mandate lawsuit is particularly important given SCU’s strange insistence on continuing its unlawful COVID-19 student jab mandate, despite the fact that the COVID jabs admittedly do not stop infection or transmission and that the COVID-19 emergency has been declared “over” by all public health authorities, removing all possible justification for mandated medical interventions. Yet, SCU announced on May 1, 2023 that its incoming students must now take the bivalent booster shot — the one tested on a total of 8 mice (all of which got COVID after being “vaccinated” against it), in order to attend or continue to attend SCU. This announcement came a day after most students had committed to attending the school for fall 2023, likely foreclosing other college choices for any students who would have chosen otherwise had students known in advance. SCU also continues to allow religious exemptions for all faculty and staff, while younger healthier college-age students are not given that same option.
On September 12, 2023, Respondents filed their Appellate Brief in opposition to our appeal of the trial court’s dismissal of this critical college COVID mandate lawsuit. Our FNF attorneys now have until October 2, 2023 to file our Reply. Oral argument on this appeal may be set in December 2023 or early 2024.
