Lawyer says he filed a complaint against Ochsner, Lourdes



A lawyer from Alexandria said he filed a complaint against two hospitals in Lafayette for their vaccine needs.

Jimmy Faircloth, who at one point worked as executive counsel for former Governor Bobby Jindal, sent a press release Monday saying he had filed the lawsuits on behalf of workers at Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center and from the Notre-Dame de Lourdes regional medical center.

What is at issue are the decisions made by the two establishments to require that all workers without religious or medical exemptions be vaccinated against COVID-19. Employees who refuse to be vaccinated and who do not have an exemption will be terminated. To learn more about mandates, click here and here.

The lawsuits ask the court to issue a temporary restraining order against the warrants. The plaintiffs are also asking for a hearing on the matter, in the hope that the court will declare the warrants “illegal and unenforceable” and issue a permanent injunction preventing hospitals from carrying out their warrants.

In addition to the Faircloth firm, the Lafayette firms of G. Shelly Maturin and the Bryson law firm also signed the petition.

Faircloth said he filed the lawsuits by fax this morning; the Lafayette clerk’s electronic system shows that the one against Ochsner has been filed, but there is nothing yet on any complaint filed against Lourdes; we are working to confirm that he was received at the courthouse.

“These mandates go against personal objections and completely ignore their unique and knowledgeable understanding of the virus and treatment options,” said a press release from Faircloth. “In the best possible light, these hospital warrants are a misguided effort to participate in a public health crusade by forcing private sector employees to undergo medical treatment for their own good and the good of the public at large.”

The lawsuits claim the vaccines will not prevent the transmission of COVID and eradicate the disease. They say hospitals are trying to force them to take the vaccine as part of a public policy effort.

“In the best possible light, it is a misguided effort to protect unvaccinated people from themselves and to participate in public policy designed to increase immunizations in general,” says the Ochsner trial. “Regarded for what it is, the defendant attempts to coerce the plaintiffs into consenting to medical treatment by threatening to punish their exercise of a fundamental right under the pretext of safety at work.”
