Legal Efforts

In addition to our legislative efforts, we also work to challenge existing laws and mandates through the judicial system. In 2022, we achieved our goal of having an attorney on retainer to provide legal guidance and to help identify potential options for legal action. Some of our initiatives include:

  • December 2022: We filed a complaint against Maine Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The lawsuit alleges that Maine EMS did not have the statutory authority to implement a vaccine mandate and that it violated its primary purpose as an agency by implementing a mandate that increased staffing shortages, thereby endangering citizens across the state.
  • September 2021: Health Choice Maine joined the Alliance Against Healthcare Mandates and collaborated with them to file a complaint for declaratory or injunctive relief of the emergency rule mandating the COVID-19 vaccinations for healthcare workers. This suit was unsuccessful. However, it resulted in the Maine DHHS reversing their attempt to change the definition of “Designated Healthcare Facility” to include Emergency Medical Services Organizations.
