District Court Judge

 Charles C. LaVerdiere of  FORT KENT, Maine is the biggest ass to ever don the Black Robes of Justice. This local yahoo presumes with your life and mine that he knows more than the Dr.’s of the CDC and the WHO. The CDC says if you are exposed to Ebola you should be quarantined 21 Days, the WHO says 42.

Judge Chuck says 10 days no symptoms…. your fine. Atta boy Chuck, glad all your infectious disease background with level 4 contagions far exceeds that of both those organizations. I do hope that if all your knowledge in that area proves to be faulty…. you and your family are ground zero.

I hope you gave her a big Hug.

FORT KENT, Maine (AP) — Kaci Hickox is free to travel unrestricted after a Maine judge on Friday rejected the state’s bid to limit her movements as a medical worker who has treated Ebola patients.

Judge Charles C. LaVerdiere ruled Hickox must continue daily monitoring and coordinate travel with state health officials to ensure continuity of monitoring. The judge said there’s no need to restrict her movements because she’s not infectious because she’s showing no symptoms.

With the judge’s ruling, a state police cruiser parked outside her home drove away.

The state went to court Thursday to impose restrictions on Hickox until the 21-day incubation period for Ebola ends on Nov. 10. Hickox, who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, contended confinement at her home in northern Maine violated her rights.

There was no immediate comment from state officials.

The judge thanked Hickox for her service in Africa and acknowledged the gravity of restricting someone’s constitutional rights without solid science to back it up.

“The court is fully aware of the misconceptions, misinformation, bad science and bad information being spread from shore to shore in our country with respect to Ebola,” he wrote. “The court is fully aware that people are acting out of fear and that this fear is not entirely rational.”

Hickox, 33, stepped into the media glare when she returned from treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone to become subject to a mandatory quarantine in New Jersey. After being released from a hospital there, she returned to this small town, where she was placed under what Maine authorities called a voluntary quarantine.

She said she is following the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation of daily monitoring for fever and other signs of the disease.

“I’m not willing to stand here and let my civil rights be violated when it’s not science-based,” she said earlier in the week.

The legal action is shaping up as the nation’s biggest test case yet in the struggle to balance public health and fear of Ebola against personal freedom.

In a court filing, the director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention backed away from the state’s original request for an in-home quarantine and called for restrictions that fall in line with federal guidelines.

Hickox remains at risk of being infected with Ebola until the end of a 21-day incubation period, Dr. Sheila Pinette.

“It is my opinion that the respondent should be subjected to an appropriate public health order for mandatory direct active monitoring and restrictions on movement as soon as possible and until the end of the incubation period … to protect the public health and safety,” she wrote.

  1. Charles C. LaVerdiere of FORT KENT, Maine is the biggest ass to ever don the Black Robes of Justice.

    There would have been much competition for the honor.

  2. Hickox is an officer in the Epidemic Intelligence Service, a militarised branch of the CDC (Center for Disease Control). As we know, the CDC opposes all sensible precautionary measures to keep ebola out of the US.

  3. And what do you think that means, Allan? Do you think she is deliberately spreading Ebola or setting us up for stealth Ebola?

  4. mairin – I don’t know: I’m just awaiting results. Nonetheless, it is behaviour which runs contrary to known principles of prevention of spread of infectious disease. The jew in charge of the CDC says that ebola isn’t an airborne infection yet the USAMRID’s Medical Management of Biological Casualties Handbook contains a chapter discussing “Viral Hemorrhagic Fever” (VHF), a category of viruses that includes Ebola, which states:

    http://www.usamriid.army.mil/education/bluebookpdf/USAMRIID%20BlueBook%207th%20Edition%20-%20Sep%202011.pdf

    (top of page 117)

    In several instances, secondary infections among contacts and medical personnel without direct body fluid exposure have been documented. These instances have propped concern of a rare phenomenon of aerosol transmission of Ebola

  5. she’s just proof that because you do well in school and are considered smart you can lack all common sense and still be stupid.

    The Judge is just an ass.

  6. I cans see Pete Moore’s point regarding her stand against what she sees as oppressive state dictat, but out of respect for her fellow citizens concerns and to be on the safe side she should have respectfully agreed to remain at home while strongly reiterating it was her choice and not that she was obeying a quarantine order if she felt that strongly about it.

  7. she has 10-32 days left before she can become symptomatic. If she does and any other cases are attributed to her will she still be heroic or a murderer?

  8. Sheila Pinette of the Maine CDC has released information that the roommate of Kaci Hickox, while in West Africa has displayed signs of ebola. Pinette says “The respondents roommate in Africa became infected without knowing how she became infected with Ebola. (Any potential risk to respondent from that incident has passed).” This is one of 35 points Pinette made while filing a verified petition for public health order yesterday with the state.

    What did arrogant nurse Kaci Hickox know about her roommate’s Ebola, and when did she know it?

  9. That’s strange.

    When it comes to issues of public safety and the opinion of experts Troll finds it acceptable to set aside the 14th Amendment but not the 2nd Amendment.

    Go figure.

  10. there is nothing involved in this about the 14th amendment or the 2nd. Quarantines are legal and temporary.

    Temporary quarantines are for public safety and so is the right to bear arms, the fact that you’re not bright enough to understand either topic is not surprising Seamus.

  11. Troll said;

    If she does and any other cases are attributed to her will she still be heroic or a murderer?

    Do you still raise ‘lynching posses’ in the US ? You know, like the ones we see in the films.

  12. do you still let murderers out of jail in Britain and NI ? I know you don’t ever execute someone no matter how heinous their crime.

    I love the High level of morality you all have.

    So besides the fact that half of you have no problem with Murder as part of a political strategy you also have no problem if someone causes other peoples death out of negligence.

    OK from this point on all west african travelers should be sent through belfast international.

  13. So besides the fact that half of you have no problem with Murder as part of a political strategy …

    Neither do you.

    Probably every successful presidential candidate you ever voted for has been a mass murderer of some kind. No, votes and fancy legislatures don’t negate the fact that killing is killing, and your choices have more blood on their hands than anyone’s in here.

  14. sorry Pete you can equate planting bombs on buses in shopping centers and pubs to elected officials voting for the military to defend a nation, but sane civilized people don’t.

  15. You supported the US government killing of hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese – and still do – despite the fact that Vietnam had not even been hostile to the US.

    This mass murder was thousands of times more horrific than anything that happened in NI, yet you still giggle in support of the slaughter of ” gooks ” from the ground and from 30,000 feet.

    Very few Americans think of Vietnam anymore, but of those who do very few would take your view that the war od choice was in any way moral or good.

  16. fuck you Phantom.

    I have never called anyone a “gook” and I never giggle over peoples deaths. I have also never said that Vietnam was moral or good.

    If you’re going to try and counter what I say try being honest, if you can. If you equate the terrorist actions of dragging women from their homes and blowing up buses and school children by people who represent no one but their own terror based politics to the actions of our military under orders from elected officials you’re an idiot, or dishonest. You choose which.

  17. What part of “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”. This woman has not committed a criminal offence but was having her liberty removed by the State. It is by definition unconstitutional.

    Now in other cases you attack people for supporting the removal of constitutional rights, namely the rights under then 2nd Amendment, in defence of public safety. Yet here you are doing exactly that. Supporting the removal of constitutional rights in defence of public safety. Make up your mind.

  18. Troll –

    Your faulty memory is well known, but you’ve twice been coarse and abusive today.

    This is not acceptable. Pack it in.

  19. You absolutely justified the massive, unprovoked US on the Vietnamese people on these pages.

    And many here will remember that.

  20. Seamus quarantines for contagious diseases are set up under the Law which is why State, Local, and Federal officials can impose them with the power and authority of the Law. It has been done all throughout history and is NOT the State depriving any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. Just the opposite.

    It is not her Constitutional right to infect and kill her fellow citizens just because she feels inconvenienced. So no rights are being removed. As I said you really have no clue about what you are saying.

  21. Phantom put up a link to where I did any such thing so it can be shown once again that you have no clue.

    I have said many things about that war, not one will substantiate your claim.

  22. Pete I find you coarse and abusive everyday.

    Do the site a favor, and crawl back under your rock.

  23. And the removal of handguns, assault rifles etc, are set up under the law as well. That law was illegal. By the same standards so is the law that allows for quarantines.
