“The only person that worried this tribunal was the father, whether or not he was vaccinated. The court did not deal with the dozens of children this child comes in contact with, nor the dozens of preschool school staff, ”said Lloyd C. Rosen, the father’s lawyer.

“This is an incredibly important decision, and it reflects the extraordinary times we live in, and the court’s decision is designed to protect the health, safety and well-being of the child,” said Evan Schein, mother’s lawyer.
