About the Kid's Case

On 27 and 28 June, The ‘Hood supported 8 parents to bring a judicial review action against the Group Manager of Medsafe for his decision to provisionally consent to the Pfizer COVID-19 product for 5-11 year olds.

The case was simply premised on the fact that there was all risk and no benefit for this product for this age group.  Further, there was no emergency to justify its provisional consent while it was still in clinical trials and both medium and longer term effects were not known.  A further pillar of the argument was that the C-19 products were now totally ineffective in the Omicron wave.

The parents also sued The Minister of Health and The COVID-19 Response Minister for rolling out these products to healthy children.  

In support of the 8 parents, the following experts provided extensive and comprehensive expert reports, which we were so proud to be filed. 

The hearing was before Justice Gendall in the High Court at Wellington.  We are all eagerly awaiting his decision.

Our legal team, led by David Jones QC and Tom Molloy of Counsel, Shelley Eden, instructing solicitor, and Katie Ashby-Koppens, legal case manager did us all proud and we know that we gave it our all and put the best case we could.
