Former refs suing the NBA over vaccine mandate

The NBA is being sued by three former referees who refused to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

The NBA is being sued by three former referees who refused to get vaccinated for COVID-19. The refs allege that their civil and human rights were violated when they were not allowed to work during the 2021-22 season.

It’s not clear what about the vaccine violated the referees’ religious principles, but Mauer went on Minnesota radio and incorrectly claimed that the vaccine was made from “aborted fetal cells.”

The NBA took a stance against discrimination, rather than violating an anti-vaxxer’s civil rights.

The NBA has been at the forefront of safety throughout the COVID pandemic and they continue to set an example with their vaccination policies.

The NBA has been at the forefront of safety throughout the COVID pandemic and they continue to set an example with their vaccination policies.

The league has a strict policy that requires all players, staff and coaches to be vaccinated before entering any team facilities or traveling with the team. With almost 90% of players having already been vaccinated, according to ESPN, it’s hard to believe that anyone would refuse the vaccine at this point. But Mauer, along with two other officials, Eddie Fushille and Greg Willard, have filed lawsuits against the league claiming that their constitutional rights have been violated.

While it’s understandable that some people might have issues with taking a new vaccine, it’s important to remember that these measures are in place for everyone’s safety. And as we’ve seen over the past year, when everyone does their part, we can beat this virus together.

Conclusion:

It’s disappointing to see that some people are still refusing to get vaccinated despite all of the information that is available about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines. The NBA has been clear about their vaccination policies from the beginning and they have every right to require their employees to be vaccinated. We hope that this lawsuit will be resolved quickly so that everyone can get back to doing what they love without putting others at risk.
