“Court Says Vaccine Not to Blame for Autism”
http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2009/02/12/washington/AP-Autism-Ruling.html?_r=1&hp

This is something that the vast majority of doctors and scientists have contended for a long time, and it’s good to see that the judges were sensible in this case. There are technically two more major cases left that the anti-vaccine crowd are fighting to win, but maybe with this precedent it will be a losing battle for them. The only thing that has come about from the anti-vaccine crowd is irrational fear of vaccines, which has likely led some people to choose not to vaccinate their children. This would be a step back a couple centuries, and by choosing not to vaccinate one is really choosing to place everyone else at risk.
