September 17, 2019 — Those who follow this blog no there is a *2nd* lawsuit against the repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination and we are still waiting to see if if a preliminary injunction will be granted in this case. This case was filed in Nassau County, NY. The RFK lawsuit filed in Albany had its preliminary injunction denied (but is still moving forward). Attorney Jim Mermigis gives a brief update below and, based on his comment about “multiple jurisdictions,” it sounds like a 3rd lawsuit is moving forward in Suffolk County, NY. Mermigis’s comments are followed by a comment from Rita Palma:
INFO FROM Attorney JIM MERMIGIS:
I know this is an extremely stressful and sad week for everyone. Please keep the faith. We have cases in multiple jurisdictions and as soon as we have something concrete, we will let you know. I will NOT comment on any lawsuits at this time because commenting could be detrimental to our cases.
Do NOT comply! Please stay true to your religious beliefs!
COMMENTS FROM Rita Palma:
IF THE INJUNCTION IS GRANTED AND ANY PARENT MUST RE-APPLY FOR A RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION, I WILL SEND YOU THE HANDBOOK/ EXEMPTION PACKET (N/C) I PUT TOGETHER ALONG WITH FAQs ABOUT HOW TO FOLLOW THE LAW AND PROMISE ANY HELP THAT I CAN OFFER YOU. PLEASE BE PATIENT- KEEP YOUR KIDS HOME FOR A LITTLE WHILE IF YOU MUST UNTIL THE COURT CASES MOVE FORWARD. YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY YOU WERE PATIENT AND YOU WILL BE GLAD FOREVER THAT YOU HELD TO YOUR CONVICTIONS.
REMEMBER, WE ARE RIGHT!!
