LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A federal appeals court has declined to lift a three-state ban on President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors.

The ruling comes after a nationwide ban on the mandate for federal contractors was imposed by a federal judge in Georgia last month.

A judge in Louisville, Kentucky, in November, issued the preliminary injunction that blocked the mandate. It includes two other states: Tennessee and Ohio.

A panel of the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the injunction in a 2-1 ruling Wednesday. The lawsuit from the states claims the vaccination requirement is unlawful and unconstitutional.
