The Montana Supreme Court Wednesday sent a legal challenge to a law banning vaccine mandates back to a lower court on a technicality. The decision is part of an ongoing legal battle over House Bill 702, which bans workplace vaccine requirements and discrimination based on vaccination status. A federal district court judge had blocked a portion of the law banning vaccine requirements for workers in healthcare facilities in March. The state Supreme Court's decision Wednesday is in response to a suit from a private law firm.
