“The New York law firm Siri & Glimstad is fighting mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations with litigation and warning letters dispatched to schools and employers.
The Washington Post has a story on Siri & Glimstad’s efforts and arguments—partly funded by the Informed Consent Action Network, a Texas-based nonprofit group fighting mandatory vaccines.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Informed Consent Action Network paid the law firm in 2019 nearly $1.3 million, according to the group’s most recent tax filing.
Siri & Glimstad contends that employers and universities can’t require COVID-19 vaccines because they were approved in an expedited process. In a February column for the health news site Stat, law firm managing partner Aaron Siri made that argument and warned of “costly and time-consuming litigation” for those enacting requirements.
The article noted that Siri & Glimstad has represented the Informed Consent Action Network.”
