(Patriot.Buzz) – For unmerited dismissals from patriotic duty by Joe Biden’s irresponsible administration, attorney Dale Saran and his colleagues Andy Meyer and Brandon Johnson are representing former U.S. military personnel in a series of lawsuits against the government.
These legal actions stem from Biden’s mandate for COVID-19 vaccination in the military, which the plaintiffs argue led to unjust discharge or cessation of duties, resulting in financial losses. The trio aims to escalate these lawsuits to a class action on behalf of all affected service members.
Saran, a retired Marine, highlighted the staggering financial implications of these cases. He stated, “It’s worth billions. That’s just flat-out. That’s what it is in backpay. It’s billions of dollars.” These lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, a specialized court dealing with cases of illegal discharge and other pay-related disputes in the military context.
This legal battle is not limited to active-duty personnel but extends to reservists. Saran estimates the number of impacted service members, including both active-duty and reservists, to be between 80,000 to 100,000.
He detailed how more than 8,000 active-duty troops were discharged, while a significant number of reservists were either advised not to drill or shifted to inactive status. Saran emphasized the absence of due process in these actions, noting that no formal hearings or administrative separation boards were convened to evaluate these decisions.
Among the plaintiffs is Zach Loesch, a former member of the Coast Guard. Loesch’s case gained attention after Joe Biden personally thanked him for his life-saving actions during Hurricane Ian. Ironically, Loesch was on the verge of being discharged for non-compliance with the vaccine mandate at that time.
Saran underscored that the financial damages sought are not limited to lost wages. They also include the repayment of enlistment bonuses, which the government is reclaiming from those discharged before fulfilling their service commitments.
He explained this with an example: “Say you enlisted for five years, you got a bonus and $50,000…And then, now, they’re like, ‘Hey, we’re gonna inject you with this.’ You’re like, ‘Yo, that’s experimental. Like, that’s not actually licensed…’” He further added, “And they throw you out. Now it’s like, ‘Well…now you didn’t fulfill your obligation; give us back the grant.’”
The Pentagon, according to Saran, possesses the funds to compensate for the lost pay, as this is already accounted for in their annual budget allocated by Congress. Saran, who has previous experience in similar cases involving the Anthrax vaccine, views this situation as a repetitive cycle of government mandates for unlicensed vaccines, drawing parallels to his past legal endeavors.
