The Louisiana Supreme Court is considering a lawsuit that challenges mandatory vaccinations for hospital employees.

Opening arguments started on Tuesday.

An attorney representing dozens of employees said Louisiana hospitals don't have the right to require vaccinations. A lawyer for Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center disagreed.

Ochsner gave its employees until October 29 to be vaccinated. If they refused, they would be placed on leave, and if they still refused after 30 days, they would be fired.
