Last month One of the affirmative action Justices refused to look into a NYPD officers request to look at the vaccine mandate. But Justice Clarence Thomas came to the rescue. This from Politico.
Last month, liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor rejected a request by Det. Anthony Marciano to look further at his legal challenge — the outcome of which could have significant implications for Mayor Eric Adams’ administration.
But Marciano resubmitted the exact same request to conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, and the high court’s press office confirmed Tuesday the case will be deliberated at a conference Oct. 7.
News that Marciano got the high court’s ear came as Adams announced an end to the vaccine mandate for private-sector employees and students participating in after-school activities Tuesday. He did not, however, budge on the requirement for city workers.
