Justice Amy Barrett denies appeal from Indiana University students fighting COVID-19 vaccine mandate --Barrett denied the request without consulting the full court | 12 Aug 2021 | Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett denied an appeal from students at Indiana University to block the school's vaccine mandate.
