BIG WIN for Health Freedom Defense Fund as Nike's Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit DENIED Health Freedom Defense Fund seeks to protect and advance health freedom, educating Americans on informed consent, advocating for human rights and bodily autonomy for all AUG 11
PUBLIUS SPECIAL GUEST: Leslie Manookian, president and founder of Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF), a nonprofit which seeks to rectify health injustice through education, advocacy, and legal challenges to unjust mandates, laws, and policies that undermine our health freedoms and human rights. A United States District Court denied Nike, Inc.’s Motion to Dismiss a lawsuit filed against it by former Nike employees and supported by Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF). In KERKERING, et al. vs. NIKE, INC., the plaintiffs assert that Nike violated their Constitutionally-protected religious freedoms by denying accommodation of their sincerely held religious beliefs against the Covid-19 vaccination. One of the plaintiffs further asserts a claim of battery against Nike as the company repeatedly refused her request for a religious accommodation and coerced her into submitting to the Covid vaccination to save her job, only to suffer debilitating side effects from the injection. The denial of Nike’s Motion to Dismiss means that the case will now move forward with depositions, discovery, and litigation a development the plaintiffs and HFDF celebrate. “Obviously, Nike would have liked to make this case go away, for itself and for the rest of corporate America, as both brazenly disregarded the American ideals codified in our Constitution by violating employees’ rights to privacy, bodily autonomy and religious freedom. HFDF hopes that by holding Nike accountable, this case will reverse corporate America’s recent intrusions into the private medical lives of employees,” said HFDF president, Leslie Manookian.
