In a blow to U.S. President Joe Biden's plan to jab every federal employee with a COVID-19 shot, a judge in Texas blocked Biden's order.
"Judge Jeffrey Vincent Brown called the mandate an overstep of presidential authority and cited the recent Supreme Court decision to strike down a separate administration mandate that had applied to private sector workers," CNN reported.
Brown added that Biden has no statutory power to mandate vaccines for federal workers. The Biden administration responded immediately with an appeal to a circuit court.
