Italian Courts and science, a troubled relationship

After the retracted judicial endorsement to the Stamina method and the infamous judgement which found the members of a Government Committee guilty of “non foreseeing an earthquake”, the Italian Courts shock the scientific community again.

The Tribunal of Milan ordered the Ministry of Health to indemnify the family of a child “made autistic by a vaccine”.

The Ministry appealed the judgement which will now be reviewed by the Milan Court of Appeals.

The causes of autism are not fully clear, but the alleged connection with vaccination has long been discarded.
