Now the Foundation has announced they are representing six Oregon workers who are suing Gov. Brown over her vaccine mandate.

According to the Foundation, who released this information Friday, Sept. 10:

 "The case was filed in U.S. District Court in Eugene, and names Gov. Kate Brown and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Director Patrick Allen as defendants. All six plaintiffs have previously had covid and have natural anti-bodies.

“The Governor’s orders fail to take into account natural immunity which current studies show to be just as - if not more - effective than any vaccine,” said Oregon Director of the Freedom Foundation, Jason Dudash. “These mandates are about control and not based in any science, which is consistent with what we’ve seen come out of the Governor’s mansion this past year, as well as the White House”.

The six persons include, according to the Foundation:

  •  Joshua Williams, chief of Aurora Fire and Rescue, who came down with COVID last January;
  • ·        Jennifer Lewis, office manager and treatment coordinator for Klamath Falls Orthodontics, who contracted the virus in December 2020;
  • ·        Beaverton school bus driver David Klaus, was tested for COVID in January and informed that he, like the others, has a “robust natural immunity to COVID-19.”
  • ·        Phillip Kearney who works for the Oregon Department of Justice as an Assistant Special Agent in Charge tested positive for COVID-19 in the spring of 2021;
  • ·        Jay Hicks resides in Malheur County, Oregon and works for the Oregon Department of Corrections where he has served for 22 years, and whose doctor specifically suggested he not get the vaccine after having recently tested positive for antibodies; and
  • ·        Michael Miller who also works for the Oregon Department of Corrections, who, while he had the virus in November of 2020, tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies September 1, 2021.

Gov. Brown, like Gov. Inslee in WA state, mandated all state workers, health care or school employees must be fully vaccinated by Oct. 18 or face loss of their job.

But, Oregon's mandate has a twist, according to the Foundation:

"Oregon public and private employers are both subject to Brown’s edicts, which threaten a fine of $500 per day, per offense until the employee is either terminated or vaccinated."

Dudash, who is quoted earlier in this story, also said this about the lawsuit:

“The Constitution unequivocally allows free Americans to refuse unwanted medical treatment,” Dudash said. “It follows logically that they can’t be discriminated against for exercising their Constitutional right.”
