Lawsuit filed against New York’s vaccine law dismissed

A lawsuit filed against New York state’s vaccination law has reportedly been dismissed.

State Attorney General Letitia James said the lawsuit, F.F. on behalf of her minor children, et al v. State of New York, et al, was dismissed.

The lawsuit comes after the state passed a law in June that removed religious exemptions for immunizations.

We are pleased with the decision by the court.”
