ICAN Attorneys File Major Lawsuit to Strike Down Portions of the PREP Act
ICAN is excited to announce that it is supporting a lawsuit that was filed today by ICAN’s attorneys to strike down the immunity to liability and the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) provisions of the PREP Act because they violate the constitutional rights of those injured or killed by a COVID-19 vaccine.
As ICAN supporters are aware, the PREP Act provides near-complete immunity to Pfizer, Moderna, J&J, and Novavax for injuries and deaths caused by their COVID-19 vaccines, as well as immunity to those who administer these products. This law basically provides a license to cause death with impunity.
In exchange for this near total elimination of COVID-19-vaccine-injured’s right to sue for their injuries, Congress created the CICP, a wholly insufficient, unjust, underfunded, and consequently unconstitutional compensation scheme where 94% of its budget goes toward administration (i.e., federal employees) instead of actually compensating those injured, and which has compensated only 4 individuals to date out of over 12,000 requests for benefits.
The lawsuit, filed against the federal entities charged with administering CICP and on behalf of eight severely COVID-19-vaccine-injured individuals and React19, an organization dedicated to helping the injured, seeks to strike down portions of the PREP Act in order to reclaim Americans’ right to seek compensation with necessary procedural safeguards for their vaccine injuries.
The Plaintiffs demand, among other things, the right to due process protections such as adequate time limits within which they can sue, the right to see any evidence used against them, the ability to present expert witnesses, and the right to appeal an adverse decision. Basic hallmarks of the American justice system. If this suit is successful, the relief sought will apply to all COVID-19 vaccine-injured individuals in the U.S.
ICAN continues to be grateful to its generous supporters who make lawsuits like this possible and is proud to support these groundbreaking lawsuits.
Attorney Aaron Siri will be discussing this case LIVE, this Thursday, October 12th at 11am Pacific Time on The HighWire with Del Bigtree.
