The state Supreme Court has joined an unusual — and unusually costly — $41.7 million negligence case that is likely to determine how, or even if, schools and other organizations operate youth programs.

I do not blame the school. She had the same risk in the USA. I blame IDSA, insurance companies, and doctors who refuse to educate themselves on the CORRECT protocol for treatment.
It is crazy to blame the school. We need a grass roots movement in this country to force accurate diagnosis and treatment of acute lyme and chronic lyme!!!!!!!!
State medical boards need cease their witch hunts of lyme literat doctors. Insurance companies need to be forced to cover chronic lyme treatment and the doctors who provide care.
