If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson.

Indeed. Duly noted.

There hasn't been discovery in Bruesewitz?
I'm sorry. My drivel is confusing you.... It's not you, it's me.

No, there hasn't been discovery. I meant that the vaccine industry is insulated from this very crucial procedure in Vaccine Court.

Thank goodness, for once it's not me. Bruesewitz isn't in Vaccine Court, though. I guess that's why they did get discovery. Or, at least, the COA opinion says they got discovery so it'd be weird if that was wrong.

As for Vaccine Court, it's a no-fault system. There's usually no need for discovery if fault isn't at issue.

Just posting some info re: the vaccine court and how it works (from Wikipedia):

"The VICP uses a no-fault system for resolving vaccine injury claims [...]If certain minimal requirements are met, legal expenses are compensated even for unsuccessful claims[...] To win an award, a claimant must show a causal connection; if medical records show a child has one of several listed adverse effects soon after vaccination, the assumption is that it was caused by the vaccine. The burden of proof is the civil-law preponderance-of-the-evidence standard, in other words a showing that causation was more likely than not. Denied claims can be pursued in civil courts, though this is rare."

"By 1999 the average claim took two years to resolve, and 42% of resolved claims were awarded compensation, as compared with 23% for medical malpractice claims through the tort system"
