Center for American Liberty CEO and civil rights attorney Harmeet Dhillon predicted a "split ruling" out of the Supreme Court in the case that will determine the constitutionality of President Biden's COVID-19 OSHA vaccine regulations.

The Supreme Court on Friday heard close to four hours of oral arguments over two of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates – which have remained under intense legal scrutiny and have been struck down in battles across federal courts. 

Dhillon, who is personally representing a client in the case, said the justices will likely uphold the mandate requiring health care workers to be vaccinated while overturning the rule applying to private companies with more than 100 employees.

"I think there may be a split ruling out of the court. I think on the case…challenging the large employer mandate, it looks to me like we have five or six votes to enjoin that order," she said. "But on the one regarding medical facilities, because the order is tied to federal funding, I think there are some different arguments there and the justices seem more likely to uphold that OSHA mandate on medical facilities."
