There are three courts in the land: the court of justice (Judicial branch of government), the court of public opinion (i.e., news media), and the Vaccine Court. The first two courts are public. The third is private. Because the Vaccine Court is hidden out of sight, most people never learn of its existence.
Why Hide a Court Unless You Have Something To Hide?
The Vaccine Court is a federal court, without a jury, run by Special Masters that pay out compensation in millions of dollars each year to families of vaccine-injured casualties. Families have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the onset of symptoms for injuries after the administration of a vaccine. In the case of death, only 2 years. Is justice served when parents make their case against government attorneys of the Justice Department in a government-run courtroom?
Normally, when a product fails, the burden of proof rests with the manufacturer. However, in Vaccine Court, the burden of proof rests squarely on the family to show a connection between cause and effect. Proving such a connection is not easy since diagnostic criteria by the American Psychiatric Association has changed several times. Cases can take 2 to ten years to resolve. Therefore, recipients of financial awards represent only a fraction of petitioners, and a smaller fraction of actual vaccine injuries that happen every day.
