An ICAN-funded lawsuit has struck down the Covid-19 vaccine mandate to attend school in San Diego, California! This is the first COVID-19 vaccine requirement in the country to be struck down in a final ruling.
ICAN’s lead attorney, Aaron Siri, and his team filed a lawsuit funded by ICAN on behalf of a parent whose child was going to be mandated to receive the Covid-19 vaccine to continue school. That ICAN lawsuit, S.V. on behalf of J.D. vs San Diego Unified School District, was consolidated with a lawsuit filed by Let Them Choose. Both plaintiffs moved for a final decision from the Court asking it to find that the Covid-19 vaccine mandate for students was illegal and the Judge, this morning, ruled it was illegal! Copy of tentative decision can be read here. The final will be released as soon as possible.
The basis for this decision, that school boards in California do not have the authority to require a Covid-19 vaccine, would apply to all school boards across California that are seeking to mandate a Covid-19 vaccine. ICAN intends to fund lawsuits against any other school board in California that seeks to mandate a Covid-19 vaccine.
Congratulations to all the parents in San Diego, California and beyond who no longer need to inject their children with a liability-free, novel medical product in order to attend school. And thank you for your support in making this work possible! Without you, ICAN’s critical work would not be possible.
