Three Supreme Court Justices Tried to Force the Navy to Deploy Unvaccinated SEALs


Recommended Posts

On Friday afternoon, the Supreme Court froze an injunction that would have required the Navy to deploy SEALs who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The decision suggests that SCOTUS has little patience for lower courts’ efforts to seize authority from the armed forces by inserting themselves into the chain of command. One such recent ruling barred the Navy from reassigning the commanding officer of a guided-missile destroyer, an anti-vaxxer who repeatedly defied lawful orders and recklessly exposed dozens to the virus. High-ranking military officials testified that decisions like these undermined military readiness and threatened national security.
