The Justice department is quietly preparing for a surge of lawsuits from those who are claiming injury from the Covid-19 vaccines.
The New York Post, in a column authored by Miranda Devine, shared a fascinating nugget that is highly suggestive that the Biden DOJ knows a wave of such lawsuits are coming.
Devine points to a new jobs ad that indicates the Biden administration is searching for “eight new attorneys to defend the federal government in vaccine injury cases.”
“The office is currently expanding to address workload created by an increase in cases filed under the Vaccine Act,” says the ad posted by the Torts Branch of the DOJ on the USAJobs website.
The jobs listing was also posted on LinkedIn.
“Trial attorneys in Office of Constitutional and Specialized Tort Litigation – Vaccine Litigation Staff – represent the interests of the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in all cases filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (“Vaccine Act”). The cases involve claims of injury as a result of the receipt of vaccines covered by the Act. The office is currently expanding to address workload created by an increase in cases filed under the Vaccine Act,” the listing says.
Devine adds, “Presumably, the hiring spree is in anticipation of a surge of COVID vaccine lawsuits, as people who were forced by government mandates to take the jab, and suffered serious side effects as a result, try to extract compensation from a system that is stacked against them.”
She references that “The recruitment drive comes on the heels of a little-noticed lawsuit filed in Louisiana last month by six vaccine-injured plaintiffs against the federal government. The suit aims to overturn the legal immunity that pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer and Moderna enjoy on their COVID shots.”
The lawsuit itself represents a significant threat to Big Pharma’s “liability shield.”
“A lawsuit by Covid-19 vaccine recipients claiming they were injured by their shots may usher in long-awaited changes to how the federal government handles immunization injuries,” writes Ian Lopez of Bloomberg Law.
“Individuals frustrated by the HHS program designed to compensate them for their injuries are taking their grievances to court,” he continues. “In a lawsuit lodged with the US District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, they say the program is unconstitutional, depriving them of their rights to due process and a jury trial.”
“Lawyers say the move could spur Congress and the Department of Health and Human Services to reform how they handle vaccine injuries, as well as push more of the individuals alleging injuries to not just sue the government, but the drugmakers that the program is meant to shield from litigation,” the article adds.
“‘This is the first domino to fall,” said David Carney, a Green & Schafle LLC attorney representing people injured by vaccines. “We’re going to start to see a windfall.”
The legal article notes that the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is “in desperate need for more special masters to review the backlog of nearly 4,000 injury claims.”
Covid vaccine injuries are not currently covered under the VICP. Such claims are filed with the HHS’ Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program.
The Post article also points to a rising phenomenon known as “Long Vax,” which medical experts are investigating as a host of chronic symptoms related to the novel mRNA vaccines.
Dr. Anne Louise Oaklander, a neurologist and researcher at Harvard Medical School, told Science about the new syndrome.
“You see one or two patients and you wonder if it’s a coincidence,” Dr. Oaklander said.
“But by the time you’ve seen 10, 20 [patients],” she said, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
The alleged cases are “very rare”; however, they are being closely compared to “Long Covid,” which strongly suggests the two syndromes may be confounded.
The Covid-19 vaccines were sold as “100% safe and effective.” They were touted as necessary to protect one’s family and community, although they do virtually nothing to stop the spread. And there were adverse effects, particularly for young people, who were not at statistically significant risk from the Covid virus itself.
The Covid-19 vaccine reckoning cannot come soon enough.
