Liberty Counsel filed a supplemental memorandum today in federal court before Judge Steven Merryday in the pursuit of seeking class action relief from the unlawful federal COVID shot mandate on behalf of those who currently serve in the United States Marine Corps. Plaintiffs submitted this supplemental memorandum explaining why the Marine plaintiffs are good representatives of the putative class of the Marine Corps in this lawsuit.

Seven days ago, Liberty Counsel filed an amended complaint on behalf of 15 plaintiffs who currently serve in the United States Marine Corps. Four plaintiffs located in the Tampa District were added to the 11 already in the existing complaint. Judge Merryday required the memorandum as a follow-up to the previous amended complaint.

After the Department of Defense responds to this memorandum, Judge Merryday will then make a decision whether the court will certify the class of Marines and enter a class wide preliminary injunction.

In the next couple weeks, Liberty Counsel will also be filing additional amended complaints adding service members from the various branches who are located in the Tampa District. Liberty Counsel will continue to press for classwide injunctive relief for the all the military branches.

The plaintiffs are Marines who face a deadline to receive an injection that violates their sincerely held religious beliefs since all of the COVID shots are associated with aborted fetal cells. They have been refused any religious exemption or accommodation. These service members had until November 28, 2021, to become fully vaccinated. However, these dates have passed, and disciplinary actions have already commenced. 

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Relief for these military heroes is needed now to prevent them from facing discharge, court martial, other life-altering disciplinary procedures, and termination. We continue to fight for their freedom as no service member should be forced to choose between serving God and serving country.”
