A University of Minnesota Duluth student has filed suit challenging the university system's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all students.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, seeks an order halting the university's requirement that students at its five campuses be vaccinated by Oct. 8. The university, Board of Regents and University President Joan Gabel are named in the suit.

"The University of Minnesota may not unilaterally require new immunizations," attorney Sam Diehl, who is representing the student, said in an e-mail. "President Gabel's unlawful attempt to mandate student COVID-19 vaccination violates Minnesota law and must be enjoined."
