On 11/17/2021 Shortridge filed a Civil Right – Employment Discrimination lawsuit against Centrus Energy Corp. This case was filed in U.S. District Courts, Ohio Southern District. The Judges overseeing this case are Algenon L. Marbley and Elizabeth Preston Deavers.  [3]

The federal government offered Defendants cash payments in exchange for enforcing vaccine mandates and achieving a rate of 90% of vaccination among its workers.



This case challenges the Biden Administration’s attempt to pay off companies in order to coerce their employees to undergo a medical treatment that violate their Constitutional and civil rights.


Plaintiff’s Argument

442 Civil Rights – Employment [2]

The Defendants’ vaccine mandates are subject to First Amendment Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) of 1993. Defendants violated Title VII of Civil Rights Act of 1964 by failing to provide employees required medical or religious accommodation and instead Defendants threatened to terminate Plaintiffs if they did not get vaccinated. Defendants have violated the US Constitution by forcing the Plaints to choose to either take the vaccination at the expense of their religious beliefs or health, or losing their jobs. [1]

Biden’s Executive Order authorized a Task Force to update vaccine mandate guidance on a continuing basis. The Task Force Guidance requires federal contractors and subcontractors to mandate “COVID-19 vaccination of covered contractor employees, except in limited circumstances. where an employee is legally entitled to an accommodation….[C]overed contractor employees are  to be “fully vaccinated” by January 18, 2022
