FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - United Airlines employees who are suing the airline over its vaccine mandate will get more time to make their case.

A federal judge in Texas ordered United not to place unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave if they are seeking a medical or religious exemption from mandatory vaccination against COVID-19.

The judge said he was acting because United promise not to act against the unvaccinated employees will expire before he can issue a ruling in the case.
