Today, we filed a Complaint against the Rectors and Visitors of the University of Virginia and the University of Virginia Health System on behalf of a university employee who was refused her religious exemption to the University’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate and was notified that she would be terminated. The Complaint as well as the accompanying Application for a Temporary Injunction claim that the University’s action of denying the religious exemption and terminating plaintiff’s employment violated the freedom of religious protected by Article I, Section 16 of the Virginia Constitution and was arbitrary and capricious.
The Complaint was filed with co-counsel Rick Boyer, Integrity Law Firm, PLLC; Patrick McSweeney, McSweeney, Cynkar & Kachouroff, PLLC; Christopher Collins, Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C.; and David Browne, Spiro & Browne, PLC.
