Month in Review – September 2022

Here are highlights for September:

* On September 12, we filed our response in opposition to the Government’s motion to dismiss our lawsuit challenging the military vaccine mandate.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of four Navy SEALs, who object to the vaccine on religious grounds.

* On September 16, we filed our reply brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in response to Twitter’s and the Biden administration’s opposition briefs.

In this appeal, we are arguing that the district court erroneously dismissed our client’s lawsuit alleging that President Biden and Twitter conspired to have Twitter censor our client’s speech on behalf of the government in violation of the First and Fifth Amendments.

In the lawsuit, Dr. Colleen Huber, a licensed naturopathic medical doctor, dared to cite news articles suggesting bad outcomes attributed to COVID vaccines in Israel and that these outcomes were underreported by the Israeli government.

The reply brief argues quite emphatically that Twitter and the Biden administration are effectively asking the Court of Appeals to ignore the facts and the law in upholding the lower court’s dismissal of our class action lawsuit.  The reality is clear: the lower court dismissed our client’s complaint by simply ignoring the factual record of an outright conspiracy to have Twitter act as President Biden’s government censor by permanently shutting down Dr. Huber’s Twitter account.

* On September 23, we filed our notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (Philadelphia) in our lawsuit challenging various COVID restrictions imposed by the state’s left-wing governor and Department of Health secretary.

The district court dismissed the lawsuit without reaching the merits, holding that the case is now moot because the challenged orders have since been rescinded.

The court also held that our clients do not have “standing” to challenge the contact tracing program, even though they were all subject to its draconian restrictions.

* Also on September 23, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel Robert Muise gave a presentation on religious liberty at a St. Pio Feast Day celebration in Michigan.

* On September 26, we filed our notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (Washington), in our lawsuit against Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a group of parents from Loudon County, Virginia and Saline, Michigan, challenging the Attorney General’s policy of targeting parents who speak out against left-wing school board members as “domestic terrorists.”

The district court dismissed the lawsuit, claiming that the parents could not show that they were “injured” by the policy.

* On September 28, we sent a demand letter to the General Counsel of the University of Michigan on behalf of a tenured professor in the Biomedical Engineering Department who objects to the University’s vaccine mandate on religious grounds.  The professor’s request for a religious exemption was recently denied.

* On September 30, we filed a surreply on the issue of “justiciability” in our Navy SEAL lawsuit.  The district court requested additional briefing on this issue.

* This month, we recorded two new videocasts/podcasts as part of our Faith and Freedom Fighters program.  You can view the videocasts on our Rumble channel here.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support.  We couldn’t do what we do without them!
