With an order of 3 January 2022, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, granted a motion for Preliminary Injunction filed by 35 members of the Navy Special Warfare who had refused COVID-19 vaccination for religious reasons.

The plaintiffs had asked the Court to enjoin President Biden and his administration from enforcing the vaccination policy, which provided inter alia for several sanctions for those who had not complied with the mandatory vaccination rule introduced in August 2021. They alleged such a policy violated their religious freedoms under the First Amendment and Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
