The plaintiff argued that there was a violation of the National Childhood Vaccine Act of 1986 as well as fraud, and conspiracy to commit fraud.
The United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York dismissed the claim as “meritless” and said it lacked jurisdiction because the plaintiff “has failed to exhaust his administrative remedies.”
Now his attorney, Patricia Finn, has filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court. A writ of certiorari is described by the United States Courts website as “a request that the Supreme Court order a lower court to send up the record of the case for review.”
On a crowdfunding website, the attorney said that their firm had “filed the most important case they have handled in over two decades of fighting to secure medical freedom rights for their clients.
It called the case “a culmination of years of litigation, and the hard work and sacrifice of all the families they have represented in the fight for vaccine choice and safety.”
