Lawyer appeals judge’s decision affirm IU’s vaccine policy

The lawyer for the eight students who sued Indiana University over it’s vaccination requirement has appealed a federal judges ruling on their request to block the mandate. The judge said in a South Bend courtroom on Monday that IU is justified in mandating that students be vaccinated for COVID in order to return to class in the fall. Attorney Jim Bopp says there are still unknowns about the vaccine — and he’s confident the U.S. Court of Appeals will agree that it should not be required. For now though — every IU student that plans to return in the fall must be vaccinated.
