Families of 26K unvaccinated children in NY await judge's decision on school

08.15.19 | Bob Price, Sarah Harnisch

Attorney's representing these families were in court yesterday to try and get the state's revamped vaccine law blocked.

In June, Governor Cuomo signed legislation requiring all school-age children to receive vaccinations unless a medical condition prevents them from doing so.

If the judge rules in favor of a stay, each of the families kids would be able to go to school while the case plays out in court.

The attorneys for the state argue it would not cause "irreparable harm" to those children if they were removed from the school system.

Attorney Michael Sussman argues the right to an education is constitutionally.

The judge has until tomorrow to make a decision.
