Rhode Island Teachers Win Lawsuit for Being Fired Over Vaccine Refusal
A school district in Rhode Island has settled with three teachers that sued when they were fired for refusing to take the COVID vaccines.
‘It’s vindication,” the teachers’ attorney, Gregory P. Piccirilli, told the Coalition Radio Network about the half a million-dollar settlement.
“The key part is, they have their reinstatement. Their records are purged. They don’t ever have to say that they were fired if they apply for another job … just 100% vindication. More than I think we could have hoped for even if we’d won in court,” he said.
The teachers, Brittany DiOrio, Stephanie Hines, and Kerri Thurber, were denied religious exemptions for no legitimate reason. And then they were suspended without pay.
The Barrington Public School district announced that the teachers will get full reinstatement, back pay, and attorney’s fees.
Per The Blaze:
Hines, Thurber, and DiOrio will receive back pay in the amounts of $65,000, $128,000, and $150,000, respectively. Each woman will receive $33,333 on top of that, a three-way split of $100,000. Barrington Public Schools will also be paying the teachers’ legal counsel $50,000.
“Our district was navigating an unprecedented health pandemic and leaned on the important recommendations by the CDC and the Rhode Island Department of Health to ensure the safety of our students and school community,” the statement said, in part.
“Our then-policy helped combat the pressing public health crisis of the time, while keeping schools open, and one that nearly all faculty adhered to,” the statement also said.
“In coordination with our legal counsel and Superintendent, we determine this ongoing, expensive litigation would likely continue for a lengthy period of time, and a resolution should be reached. We believe our Administration’s time, and our District’s financial resources should be spent on the daily work and mission of Barrington Public Schools. Our School Committee looks forward to continuing to support this work.”
This is another good outcome that is setting the fascist lockdown supporters back on their haunches.
We need more court cases like this in order to put a block on the authoritarian actions that they so easily took during the COVID hysteria. We need a bulwark of court cases that will tend to block similar over-the-top actions that took away all our freedoms.
