The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit will hear challenges to President Joe Biden’s federal vaccine mandate for businesses with more than 100 employees, according to the results of a ping-pong ball lottery on Tuesday.

A ping-pong lottery occurs when multiple petitions for review are filed against the same agency, person, or business in various courts of appeal around the country. To save time and avoid contradictory outcomes, the numbers of the courts in which the suits are filed are written on ping-pong balls, stuck in a solid wood raffle drum, and one is randomly selected.

Then, the cases are consolidated and heard by whichever court won the ping-pong lottery. Thirty-four lawsuits were brought against Biden’s federal vaccine mandate in 12 different courts of appeals after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published its COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on November 5. Those lawsuits will now be combined and heard in the Ohio-based Sixth Circuit court, which has a Republican judge majority 10-6.

A three-judge panel of the Cincinnati-based appeals court, which has not been selected yet, is expected to hear the first case.  . . .

Depending on the outcome of the ruling in the conservative-leaning court, the case has a decent chance of making it to the United States Supreme Court.

The result of the lottery is yet another blow to the OSHA rule — the agency suspended the implementation of its mandate affecting roughly 80 million workers on Wednesday after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay its COVID-19 ETS. According to the court order, OSHA is to “take no steps to implement or enforce the Mandate until further court order.” The order from the Fifth Circuit will remain in effect until another ruling is reached in the Sixth Circuit. . . .

Most of the legal challenges to the mandate come from Republican-led states and some private businesses, which argue that the rule is unconstitutional and that OSHA has exceeded its authority under federal law. Some leftist unions joined in later, instead arguing that OSHA’s rule should be even more strict. . . .

The agency postponed the deadline until Jan. 4 following pushback after the initial announcement. The rule includes “planned inspections” as well as hefty fines for violators — up to $14,000 for first offenses. . . .

What do you think about this vaccine mandate going to sixth circuit court? Discuss in the comments!

A prayer for our nation
Father, thank You for raising up this nation to be a light, a city on a hill, trumpeting the gospel of the kingdom across our nation and to the ends of the earth, and as an ally and defender of Israel, not allowing their land to be divided but instead to support them in acquiring all the land that You gave them. Though we have strayed from our purpose and destiny, You have not. You are resurrecting our divine destiny allowing us to participate in the greatest harvest of a trillion souls, especially the Jews. Therefore God convict us of sin; reveal the depth of our depravity, grant us the grace to repent, and set us free from deception. Remove the hardness from our hearts, lift off the veil, bring us true revelation of Jesus. We ask for Your Spirit of revelation to be released over us individually, our families, and over all the USA, and the world. Render our hearts as yours across our nation, infuse us with the Holy Spirit’s power to ignite and spread revival in the USA. Free our hearts from the strongholds and curses of sin and rebellion, abortion, the murder of innocent lives, sexual abuse, sexual confusion and perversion, human and drug trafficking. Release our hearts from self-sufficiency, pride, and arrogance, idolatry and addictions.
We declare remorse for our sins, and ask revelation of Your grace, and bring us into true repentance throughout the USA and the world. Help us to take up our authority, our shield of faith, the sword of the Spirit, and the Keys of the Kingdom to bind, tear down, and destroy evil strongholds in all arenas heavenly, in the church, government, education, arts, business and finance and to loosen Your Holy Spirit and mighty warrior angels through prayers, fasting, obedience and declarations of faith.
In Christ we declare that righteousness consciousness is reigning now over the USA and over the all courts local and state, and over the Supreme Court Justices whose hearts we proclaim are in Your hands to turn them toward Your heart to obey Your will and the will of your people for the glory of God and good of this nation. We declare that the wicked laws of abortion and Roe vs Wade are all rendered unconstitutional and that the courts and the Supreme Court reverse them all with a unanimous vote! We pray for the Supreme court to take a righteous unanimous stance to declare that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent and unconstitutional, and therefore set a precedent to overturn the 2020 election results and declare and reinstate President Donald J. Trump as the legitimately elected president.
We pray that all laws and executive orders that were signed by Biden would be null and void and therefore reversed. We thank You for the complete dismantling and demise of the Biden administration, rhino republicans, and for the annihilation of the deep state and the evil foreign players that sought to destroy this nation and cause worldwide crisis and death through the corona virus and its deadly cures while withholding good preventive and curative interventions. We pray that they would all be exposed, judged and condemned in national, international, heavenly judicial tribunals. We declare that these criminals, our enemies, are all subjugated under our feet in Jesus’ name. Amen!
