Two General Hospital Crew Members Sue ABC Citing Vaccine Mandate and Religious Discimination

Two former “General Hospital” crew members, Jim Wahl and Timothy Wahl, are suing ABC for wrongful termination after being fired for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19. In the suit, obtained by Variety, they claim that the vaccine requirement infringes on their religious beliefs.

“On November 9, 2021, ABC officially denied Plaintiffs’ requests for religious exemptions to the Covid Vaccine Mandate,” the suit reads. “It gave no reason for its decision, except to say that the company was ‘unable to conclude that you are prevented from receiving the Covid-19 vaccine due to a sincerely-held religious belief, practice, or observance.’”

The suit continued: “Plaintiffs desire a judicial declaration that ABC’s vaccine mandate is unconstitutional because it violates their right to privacy under Article I, section 1 of the California Constitution. This is both a facial and an as-applied challenge.”
