11/27/2002 "Bush asks court to seal records on autism caused by vaccines"


UnderReported.com :: Surprising stories from the media and primary sources

Posted November 27, 2002

According to a Nov. 26, 2002 Reuters story:

Attorneys for the Bush Administration asked a federal court on Monday to order that documents on hundreds of cases of autism allegedly caused by childhood vaccines be kept from the public.

Department of Justice lawyers asked a special master in the US Court of Federal Claims to seal the documents, arguing that allowing their automatic disclosure would take away the right of federal agencies to decide when and how the material should be released.

Wow -- what a reason -- "just because". Oh, here's the real reason:

Monday's request by the Bush Administration would prevent plaintiffs who later go to civil court from using some relevant evidence generated during the required vaccine court proceedings.
