The Superior Court of Stamford failed to rule on a lawsuit concerning religious exemptions for vaccines on July 18.
Following the State Legislature's decision to eliminate religious exemptions for vaccination in 2021, newly matriculating students are barred from choosing a religious exemption while existing students maintain approval for the exemption.
Suing to have the ban overturned, CT families stated the 2021 law splits up their children between those that are able to attend and those that are not.
"I try to explain to my kids why he can't go to school with his sister. He's home as she gets on the bus and he cannot get on the bus," Kiera Spillane of Orange said to News 12.
Failing to rule on the issue, the Judge of the Superior Court stated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) of 1993 should take precedence.
"You know what a super spreader event is," Gov. Ned Lamont said. "I think the Legislature did the right thing."
Despite not currently mandating vaccination for Covid-19, attorneys of the affected families stated they believe mandates will be imposed sooner than later.
