Parents of 4 Indiana families have filed suit in Allen Superior Court against the Governor, Indiana Department of Health, Allen County Board of Health, state and local health officers and our local school corporation. We filed this lawsuit on behalf of our children, K-12 students across the State and in the name of Freedom for all individuals. Taking legal action is the last thing any of us wanted to do. We have done this after all other avenues of reprieve have been exhausted. We stand in front of our children as their protectors and demand that their Freedoms and Constitutional Rights are trampled on no more.
We oppose mandates that include: forced masking, forced healthy quarantines, forced testing, coerced vaccination, and forced contract tracing in our schools. We recently survived Motions to Dismiss filed by County Defendants and School Defendants. The Judge has ruled that our case can proceed before the court to be heard. We have also responded to a similar motion filed by the State Defendants that will be argued at a hearing in late January.
Healthy children and staff are being quarantined. They are removed from school because they were allegedly near a person who may have been sick. People who are not sick, show no symptoms, have done nothing wrong, and committed no crime are identified and placed on a "list." These healthy people are then separated from their peers, removed from school, and suspended from in-person learning, sports teams, and extracurricular activities. This violates state law and their constitutional rights, bestowed upon them by Almighty God.
Separate rules are enforced depending on the person's "vaccinated" status. Children, teachers, and faculty are subjected to mandatory testing, forced masking, or coerced vaccines to remain a free citizen and return to school. We believe this is illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional. We must defend our children, our teachers, and our schools. This lawsuit is a Fight 4 Freedom!
We cannot guarantee how the case will end or how far it will go. We do know that we cannot do this alone. We are four families taking on giants in a lawsuit that appears to be unlike any other in the entire State. The outcome of this case can affect students, teachers, and faculty throughout the State of Indiana. You can follow the case under Cause Number 02D09-2109-PL-000366.
