Issues: (1) Whether–when the Supreme Court held in Zauderer v. Office of Disciplinary Counsel of the Supreme Court of Ohio that an exception allowing for less rigorous review applies when the government seeks to combat misleading commercial speech by requiring (as an alternative to restricting speech) the disclosure of “purely factual and uncontroversial information” that is not “unduly burdensome” and is “reasonably related to the state’s interest in preventing deception of consumers”–this reduced standard of scrutiny of compelled commercial speech applies beyond the need to prevent consumer deception; and (2) whether, when the Zauderer standard applies, it is sufficient that the compelled speech be: factually accurate, even if controversial and, when read as a whole, potentially misleading; and merely reasonably related to any non-“trivial” governmental interest.

Update: Without calling for a response or referring the case to the full court, Justice Breyer just rejected last week's challenge from Massachusetts hospital workers who object to the hospital's COVID vaccine mandate.
(Breyer handles emergency requests from Massachusetts.)
JUST IN: Another shadow-docket challenge to a COVID vaccine mandate. This one is from employees at Mass General Brigham who say the Boston-based hospital violated federal law by not granting them exemptions from the hospital's vaccine policy.
