Rockland County NY Settles Lawsuit Over Emergency Order That Discriminated Against Healthy Children During Measles Outbreal

Note: This is big news below, from Children's Health Defense. Measles is back in the news, generating fear to increase MMR uptake. One New York county is going to pay three quarters of a million dollars in a settlement for prohibiting HEALTHY children, who did not have MMR vaccine compliance, from school. The only way to affect change is to hit the pockets. Thank you to CHD for leading the way toward health freedom. Subscribe to The Defender today.


A New York County Pays $750,000 to Families Whose Unvaccinated Kids Were Barred From School During Measles Outbreak

Rockland County’s 2019 emergency order prohibited children without measles vaccinations, including those with religious exemptions, from attending school or visiting public places for months. The county settled with parents who sued county officials for unlawfully ignoring their children’s religious exemptions.

Families who sued a New York county and two public officials over a 2019 emergency order banning their unvaccinated children from public spaces during a measles outbreak late last week have reached a settlement, just days before going to trial.

Rockland County’s 2019 emergency order prohibited children without measles vaccinations, including those with religious exemptions, from attending school or visiting public places for months, following a measles outbreak in the region.

Michael Sussman, the attorney representing the families, told The Defender Rockland County will provide $750,000 to the plaintiffs, “to be distributed by us as we choose to do so.”

The case was sent to a jury trial in November 2022 after the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, overturned a lower court’s finding that Rockland County public health authorities were justified in issuing the emergency order.

Sixteen families of children affected by the emergency order sued Rockland County, the county’s executive and its health commissioner in April 2019, alleging the order was “motivated by animus against religion.” The families said the order violated the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.

The jury trial in the case was set to begin today in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

According to Sussman, there was no indication Rockland County was ready to settle until late last week. He described the settlement as “a good result” for the plaintiffs.

“I thought the county acted responsibly in taking the case seriously because it involves serious rights,” Sussman said.

In an email, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president & CEO, told The Defender:

“The ‘measles epidemic’ that unfolded in 2018-19 in Brooklyn and Rockland County, New York, was the forerunner of the 2020 ‘COVID pandemic.’

“Intense media fear-mongering laid the groundwork for unlawful expulsion of unvaccinated children from schools — who had lawful religious exemptions — and lockdowns.

“After a long legal journey, Rockland County has de facto apologized — to the tune of $750,000 — to the families that the county treated wrongly. CHD is proud to have offered support to the families and lawyers in the case.”

CHD provided support to the plaintiffs and their legal counsel in this lawsuit.

Plaintiffs who spoke with The Defender said they are satisfied with the settlement.


New from Skyhorse Publishing. By Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul was on to Anthony Fauci from the start. Wielding previously unimaginable power, Fauci misled the country about the origins of the Covid pandemic and shut down scientific dissent.

One of the few leaders who dared to challenge "America’s Doctor" was Senator Rand Paul, himself a physician. Deception is his indictment of the catastrophic failures of the public health bureaucracy during the pandemic.

Senator Paul presents the evidence that:
  • The Covid virus was likely the product of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in China—research funded in part by the U.S. government.
  • Taxpayer dollars for that research were deceptively funneled to Wuhan without the required regulatory review.
  • Fauci and his scientific yes-men knew from day one about Covid’s origin and tried to cover it up.
  • Fauci and his allies ruthlessly attacked everyone—including highly qualified scientists—who threatened to reveal the truth about the pandemic.
Why? Hundreds of millions of dollars of grants and unreported royalties were at stake, and heads would roll if the truth got out.

It almost worked. At Fauci’s insistence, the government imposed needlessly extreme lockdowns on Americans at the cost of immense personal and economic destruction.

Covid-19 was deadly, but the real killer was the coverup, led by America’s most durable medical bureaucrat—a man for whom the truth was too often expendable.

Senator Paul makes a powerful case that funding dangerous bioengineering in a totalitarian country is madness. If we don’t heed this warning, the next pandemic could be far worse.




Thank you Emma;
Plotkin did not mind one bit using children with Intellical disabilities for his experiments either, and often did.
Oh, he made excuses, for it was that kind of group think attitude at the time, that his thinking and behavior was just typically normal.

It may have been, it is one thing to think of a person as subhuman, but another to actually damage them directly.

Fredrick; They are always talking about winning the hearts and minds of public opinion. Plotkins showed the true man behind the facade and it was uncaring, cold, believed in nothing beyond himself.


Five Eyes Fred is back!

Spying on the U.S. from the City of London. LOL!
I guess your AL-GO-Rhythms don't work here.
Please spare us your non-AI posts.
Stanly Plotkin tucked his tail and removed himself as "expert" witness.
He admitted using cut up preborn babies for his vaccine research before abortion was legal in the U.S. One fine day, justice will be served.

Despite your interpretation the mother and her "expert" lost the case and a subsequent appeal. You should read more case law and watch less Del Bigtree.


I live in Rockland County and I remember getting the call that my daughter was to be “excluded” from school due to the “mandate.” Luckily (?) we had done a titer test and she was off the charts with her measles titers and was permitted to be “included” based on that.


I watched nine hours of (LOL Lawyer) Siri question a well known vaccine scientist that had written the text book on vaccines, Dr. Plotkins. The lawyer was asked by the mother in a child custody case up in Michigan to defend her rights as a parent..

Did you watch it?
Did you watch Siri on Del Bigtree?

I am guessing two things. You are part of hired cover up? or you clinging to ignorance caused by years of propaganda?

Siri; said, he was worried about how he could learn enough to even question famous Dr. Plotkin who had even been at the heart of Polio vaccine research in Africa..

It turns out that after 40 years of public health officials, of the likes of Plotkins; that they are standing on genocidal mountains of vaccine injured, and dead. Turns out that those injured, along with their families, opened minded people, good people have organized enough to at least collect information.

Siri wiped the ground with Plotkin, Siri also brilliantly cleared the fog of vaccine propaganda of each vaccine in Emma's link.

Thank you for making my day start off with a laugh, Chop!

Lol lawyers:) It's unimaginable that modern-day parents would want their children unvaccinated during a measles outbreak.

I appreciate your astute comment about the NY lawsuit. And thank you for the valuable comments and links you post nearly daily here on AoA!


ICAN attorney Aaron Siri gives excellent testimony to the Arizona state Senate regarding childhood vaccine safety and efficacy. What he exposes would have certainly undermined the Rockdale county health department defense.
Must See!


"Families who sued a New York county and two public officials over a 2019 emergency order banning their unvaccinated children from public spaces during a measles outbreak late last week have reached a settlement, just days before going to trial."

A win? After lawyer's fees, how much of the $750,00 is left to divide between 16 families?
Weren't they fighting this on Constitutional religious principle? It would have been far more valuable to have won in court.

This would have set precedent for the whole country on whether forced vaccination is Constitutional. A citizen's right to a public education cannot be held hostage to gain compliance. There is nothing to prevent future abuse in this same area. The losers are the taxpayers and the winners are pharma, politicians and attorneys.
This was the chance to get rid of Jacobsen vs Massachusetts (the law relied on to force vaccinate) as an antiquated law. It only refers to the small pox vaccine, as it was written during Jenner's time.


To bad it did not come right out of the pockets of the people running the New York county, instead of the tax payer. Then it would really hurt the people responsible for going along with policies handed down to them by crooked federal health administrators, in bed with big pharma.

But it is still a big win, and we are all blessed this has happened

A big thank you for those that worked so hard for this hard earned win from our justice departments.
