Kaci Hickox Wins in Court
— Ace

The judge has ruled that the temporary restraint, imposed on her yesterday, is not binding.

The judge ruled: "She can do, like, whatever, man."

District Court Judge Charles C. LaVerdiere rejected a court order drawn up by Maine health officials that would have required nurse Kaci Hickox to avoid public places and keep a three-foot buffer with other people until Nov. 10, when a 21-day incubation period for the virus will end.

LaVerdiere said Hickox should continue self-monitoring for Ebola symptoms.

She will be permitted to travel -- she just has to let people know where she's going.

The judge further ruled that MSNBC must "immediately begin development on a daytime political news/chat show suitable as a vehicle for the Plaintiff."

64 Here's what I don't get: "Experts" say that Ebola can't spread until you have symptoms, but the common flu can be spread a day before that. They claim that Ebola is different--that the concentration is too low until you're showing symptoms. But they don't really know, do they? How can they? And pinpointing an exact temperature at which you're now contagious seems insane to me. Everyone is different. There isn't an on/off contagion switch. You act like you can preciously measure WHEN you're a danger, but you obviously can't. Just fucking stay HOME. If we have to pass a bill that allows you to draw your paycheck and bennies from the federal government while quarantined, then fine. Whatever. It's better than creating an epidemic.

I, on the other hand, freely admit that I hope Hickox DOES get  Teh Ebolaz. I further hope that, on the day the symptoms present themselves, Choom Boy invites her to the White House and gives her a big hug (but not, of course, for the photographers).

My fervent wish is that every one of these fools who has been spouting President Historic First's gospel of "don't panic, it's not easily transmissible -- we don't think" is made to pay for their foolishness by contracting the disease and finding out for themselves what it's all about.

In admitting I know nothing about how Ebola is transmitted -- which makes me every bit as expert as the steaming piles of shit at the CDC -- I still maintain that in the face of infectious disease being overly cautious is never a mistake.

1. She just returned from west Africa where she directly worked with ebola-infected patients so this is hardly an arbitrarily imposed quarantine.
2. The conditions were that she avoid public places and keep a buffer when interacting with other people which are not particularly onerous.
3. The quarantine was imposed by the state of Maine - not the federal government.

138 Just curious if anyone has bothered to tell the judge or Kaci herself that in almost 13% of the ebola cases (in this current outbreak in West Africa) do not present with fever (study from the New England Journal of Medicine). So for her to say she's 'ebola free' because she doesn't have a fever, shows her ignorance.

More than 1 in 10 cases do NOT present with a fever in the early stages of the disease when you are still contagious.

At the same time, I don't want to give the fed government the idea that they can confine me over what could be a malicious  accusation of having a disease that I don't have.

That it is a necessary part of governance i'll grant. That *THIS* administration will abuse it by imprisoning non-infected people on the pretext of being infected, i'll also grant. However, I do not see any way around it. It is *NECESSARY* to quarantine people infected (or suspected of being infected) with a deadly disease.

Posted by: ChristyBlinky, Detective of infectious disease czarina at October 31, 2014 10:37 AM (dMEBN)

188 Currently, we have only had 4 cases of ebola in the U.S. But think of the man hours it has taken to track down and monitor all of the contacts for the 4 ill people. It also cost about half million dollars to treat Thomas Duncan...so I'm assuming it's costing the same or more for the other 3 cases.

If we were to even have 10 cases simultaneously, I think it would pose not only a financial strain on us, but a man power strain. Think of the nursing staff necessary for round-the-clock care, the amount of waste created by each sick individual on a daily basis (read somewhere it was in the range of 40 gallons of waste per day per patient!). What if we had 20 cases? Will nurses show up to treat these cases? Will there be enough supplies to around?

Sure, it looks okay now b/c we have only had to treat a small number of cases. But we are in no way prepared to handle more than a handful at a time. We were LUCKY that Thomas Duncan didn't infect any family members or anyone else.

Once again, ebola is not highly contagious, but it is highly infectious (1 virus particle only can infect you - million or more virus particles in a drop of liquid). Just because Amber Vinson was not pouring out piles of virus when she was on the plane, does not mean it wasn't possible for one small bit of virus to infect someone on that plane.

There is way too much unknown to be casual about ebola in the U.S.

197 No court that I am aware of has ever nullified an order for quarantine due to communicable illness. ME should immediately appeal. This is BS.

198 From the CDC:


State, Local, and Tribal Law


States have police power functions to protect the health, safety, and welfare of persons within their borders. To control the spread of disease within their borders, states have laws to enforce the use of isolation and quarantine.



These laws can vary from state to state and can be  specific or broad. In some states, local health authorities implement state law. In most states, breaking a quarantine order is a criminal misdemeanor.

200 Importing disease is key to bending down the cost curve.

201 BTW, in this scrunt's case she has been exposed to the disease which means she falls under the category of "isolation".  However it seems that she has refused to take a blood test to determine for sure.  So the need to quarantine would have to be implied.

202 They have totally dropped out of sight. I thought, after the triumphant announcement that they were cleared, that we'd see them interviewed everywhere. I saw some paragraph at the end of an article that she/they tried to rent someplace and can't find a landlord so willing.

203 It's so hard to tell these days what will and won't get you lot agitated. You would think quarantining someone against their will, despite any evidence that they are diseased would be a "THE GUBMINT IS REPRESSING ME" rallying point. But I guess irrational fear of Obola trumps Constitutionality.

Isolation and Quarantine has been upheld by the courts for a long time.

Yep.  And historically considered a normal thing.

206 But I guess irrational fear of Obola trumps Constitutionality. Liberia, a country with a Constitution modeled on the US, has thousands of cases. Lots of dead people just lying in the streets. I don't think that mental image offends you, though.

207 The legal standard isn't "a bunch of people on the internet are scared." Quoting New Jersey's exact legal precedent involving quarantine: "The proofs must show that there is a 'substantial risk of dangerous conduct within the forseeable future.' These proofs must be shown by clear and convincing evidence. The terms of confinement must minimize the infringements on liberty and enhance autonomy." I'm failing to see how this particular quarantine meets the above legal standard. Asymptomatic patient, and her quarantine certainly didn't minimize infringements on liberty.

208 She's in Maine, though I'm sure their statutes have similar language.

209 "Liberia, a country with a Constitution modeled on the US, has thousands of cases. Lots of dead people just lying in the streets. I don't think that mental image offends you, though." Liberia, a country with absolutely atrocious healthcare infrastructure, almost no sanitation, and cultural burial practices that maximize contact with the deceased's corpse. So far who has contracted ebola in the United States? Two nurses who were cleaning up the vomit and feces of a late-stage Ebola patient with NO PROTECTIVE GEAR ON. The only reason those women were infected was gross negligence by the hospital they were employed at. And even then it took exposure to projectile vomit and diarrhea in order for retransmission.

210 The quarantine she originally sued to be freed from was in New Jersey.

And she won that, apparently, since she's in Maine.

212 In fairness, along with others, I've come to the conclusion that she's probably not contagious because she probably never actually came in contact with ebola patients, her self-promotion aside.  She a gadfly at best, a provocateur at worst thinks I.

213 So who is paying for all the legal assistance for Krazy Kaci?

214 Two nurses who were cleaning up the vomit and feces of a late-stage Ebola patient with NO PROTECTIVE GEAR ON. Oh bullshit, now you're just []trolling for attention[/]. They had full protective gear, but some gap up near their faces. Which lends credence to the possibility of airborne transmission, in case you care to notice the proximity from nose to lung.

215 This is why the Feds decided not to stop flights or require quarantine...since it was easy peasy to find judges who will side with them regarding no quarantine. And why Congress and the Republicans decided it was a no win situation....

216 Oh you've come to that conclusion, have you Toby? For a group of people so paranoid about an Ebola pandemic you're sure not in favor of supporting those actually risking their lives to do something about it. Flying to Africa to volunteer? Gadfly. Tweeting "STOP THE FLIGHTS"? Hero!

I have.

218 They had full protective gear, but some gap up near their faces. Come again? They had "full protective gear" except for the part of your body with the most mucosal membranes. Yeah, sounds quite "full." The reporting that I've read indicated that they were operating with little to no gear at all. While cleaning up blood, vomit and shit from a patient in the most infectious stage of the disease. http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/15/report-texas-ebola-nurses-had-no-protective-gear-for-two-days/

219 Funny thing about Liberians. Unlike foreigners with heavy accents or other languages like Guineans or Sierra Leone or Mexicans or Salvadorans, they have names like Duncan and Taylor and look and talk exactly like average, somewhat southern, Texas-ish Americans. Hard for poll watchers to suspect they weren't citizens, course many are dual anyway and vote in two countries.

220 Funny thing about Liberians. There's a pair of them doing landscaping across the street from me. Good Old Testament names. English language skills infinitely better then any call support center I've ever reached. I don't want to send them back, I just want flights 'from there' halted until they get it under control over there. If Nurse Ratched was a truly caring individual she'd go the hell back and stop terrorizing people across a couple of states.

221 This ruling should be used to invalidate any new gun regulations. Follow my logic, since Princess Snowflake's rights are more important than the public good and she seemingly poses no threat (as per the CDC - there is a very low chance of anyone getting Ebola from her). Doesn't this mean that since a legal gun owner poses a very low level of a threat to others, than there should be no new gun laws.

I am a genius!
