Lawsuit over COVID mandates dismissed
March 3, 2022
CASPER — A federal judge has once again dismissed the wide-ranging vaccine mandate lawsuit originally led by Grace Smith, the Laramie high schooler arrested for trespassing in October after returning to school while suspended for refusing to wear a mask on campus.
The plaintiffs in the case failed to meet a deadline to respond to seven motions to dismiss filed by defendants in the case on Feb. 10. Those include filings from five school districts, the Wyoming Department of Health and an intervenor representing Albany County families in favor of the health measures the suit targets.
