ER Editor: We’re including some main points from the video discussion between Activist Post’s Spiro Skouras and New Mexico lawyer Ana Garner below. Links to the New Mexico organization she works for are linked to below, as is Del Bigtree’s ICANdecide site.
This is the first legal case against mandatory vaccination, filed on behalf of a first responder.
- The stakes are extremely high with this case. This is about our medical freedoms, bodily integrity, our right to refuse any medical intervention. We’re being treated like guinea pigs.
- Ana Garner belongs to New Mexico Stands Up (NMstandsup.org, which is a public interest legal service organization run by volunteers): ALL manner of first responders in NM are now being required to have this experimental vaccine. Employees were being threatened with being fired, so a cease-and-desist letter was sent and ignored. Some employees did submit to the vaccine as a result. But 23 year-old Isaac Legaretta, a former marine and correctional officer, refused and is standing as a plaintiff. Only employees who have refused the vaccine can be represented in this lawsuit.
- An application for temporary restraining order was filed so that threats against Isaac would stop. He was already subjected to a coaching and counselling session for him to ‘rethink’ his position. Correctional officers are obliged to follow orders but are not required to have pressure put on them to be vaccinated with an experimental medical product. The temporary restraining order was denied by the judge. But a schedule has been set for a briefing for the preliminary injunction. Either a negotiation of a resolution will follow; or if they go to court at this stage, they are likely to win this part. Legaretta is unlikely to be fired while the lawsuit is pending. The ultimate aim is to get a declaratory judgement from the court saying that the federal law concerning emergency use authorization is superior to any state law or state mandate.
- Spiro: What about the EEOC’s (Equal Employment Opportunities Commission) position? We now have new guidelines re. employers being able to mandate vaccines providing it’s related to the job. Employers can recognize exemptions to this, however, so the employer has to accommodate the employee seeking an exemption with options such as working from home. So what about a first responder who has to work among people?
- Garner: We now have two federal statutes conflicting with one another. There has to be a resolution of this. Emergency medical products still have to be consented to, with the recipient being fully informed. The vaccine is experimental, so we’re experimenting with humans. It is against the Nuremburg Code, which has been adopted by the US. And it’s a crime against humanity for these organizations (even the DoD) trying to get all their personnel vaccinated. They are misrepresenting the facts about this injectable. It’s not safe and tested – you can’t even produce the safety data on it. And we have different, new vaccine technologies, such as the mRNA.
- Is there any legal precedent for this? No. It’s a brand new case of first impression.
- Neither the vaccine nor the PCR test have been approved beyond the classification of emergency use so far.
- The story of this case has been picked up nationally and internationally. The MSM/’false news’ people have been in contact, which was a disaster because it was being slanted. The big message is that people have a right to refuse. The much bigger legal problem will come when the vaccine gets approved as a medical product. But the battle has to be fought here to get traction for later on.
- This could go all the way to the Supreme Court. The district court case will be fast, dealt with by a motion hearing without a slew of experts being involved. It’s just about the judge interpreting the law. But an appeal will be launched to the 10th Circuit by whoever loses. In certain circumstances, you can go directly to the Supreme Court, but we don’t know that yet.
- It may take 6-8 months to go that high. But in the meantime, other cases are likely to emerge in other states.
- Other cases are also in the works against the NM state governor regarding the PCR test, the false death counts, the myth of ‘asymptomatic transmission’ showing that there is no public health emergency… (up to 15:00). If this is successful, it will have a knock-on effect …
From further discussion by Ana Garner, it seems that the PCR test – its unreliability and whether the virus has been isolated or not (it hasn’t) – is once again the focus of legal dispute, just as it is with the legal cases of Rocco Galati in Canada and Reiner Fuellmich in Germany.
Their organization NMstandsup.org is run on a donation basis. Legal costs will be at about half the rate of normal legal work. Generous support is coming in from New Mexico citizens, yet an appeal will require new funding.
ICAN – Del Bigtree’s group – is helping with this, which citizens can go to if they need legal help.
We have to stand our ground. Too many have capitulated. It’s an unbridled, tyrannical expression of authority that I’ve never seen in my lifetime. It all stops when we say no, no more.
Video: It’s Here: First Court Case Against Mandatory Vaccination — Attorney Interview
ANA GARNER & SPIRO SKOURAS

In this interview, which was initially banned by YouTube before it was even published (but now reversed), Spiro is joined by Attorney Ana Garner of New Mexico. Garner represents her client Isaac Legaretta, an officer at the Doña Ana County Detention Center and a military veteran, who is suing the county over its new policy for first responders to receive the COVID-19 vaccinations or face termination.
Attorney Garner explains the significance of this case and what is at stake, as it is the first of its kind and may set a new standard for legal precedent regarding mandatory vaccination. Garner says she is prepared to take this case to the Supreme Court if necessary.
Spiro and Ana Garner also discuss another case of hers that is ongoing currently. A case that challenges not only the Governor of New Mexico, but the emergency itself.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
