FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, January 13, 2022
ATTORNEY GENERAL COMMENTS ON TODAY’S RULING FROM
THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg announced today that the
United States Supreme Court has sustained the application for stays in the case of National
Federation of Independent Business, et al v. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and
Health Administration, et al, a case South Dakota brought as part of an 11-state coalition in
early November of 2021.
The stay is pending the final disposition on the petitions which are currently before the United
States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
“Today we achieved another victory over the federal government’s overreach against large
private employers and the citizens of our state,” said Ravnsborg. “This stay is not the end of
the battle as this case still needs to be heard on the merits. The battle goes on and I will
continue to fight for the people of South Dakota and our freedom from government overreach.”
