Thank you for keeping us informed and helping us understand. At present, is it only the “15 plaintiffs” who now can “Can Re-Apply for Religious Exemptions”?
Or will the DOE now apply the new consideration process to religious exemption re-applications for any of the other 1000+ DOE staff whose religious exemptions were denied?
Thanks in advance for clarifying this matter!
As of now it only applies to the 15 plaintiffs.
Our attorneys are working on making the order apply more broadly. It will take time
If it’s just for the 15, they’ll have to open it to everyone else, including those of us that didn’t even get a fair hearing to begin with.
It’s just for the 15 plaintiffs as of now.
I predict they will have to open it up for everyone who applied for an RE.
Our attorneys will argue it should be opened up for EVERYONE, even those who did not file. I do not know how the court will rule on that.
Keep watching this case – we are back in court on MONDAY, NOV 22nd
I would like to re-apply too!
