Autistic Children Ineligible For Vaccine Funds : NPR

Autistic Children Ineligible For Vaccine Funds : NPR, Feb. 12, 2009:

A federal court has issued a ruling that families claiming their child's autism is caused by vaccines will not be eligible for a previously established program to compensate people injured by vaccines.

The special court set up by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims ruled that neither a preservative used in vaccines nor the vaccines themselves could be linked to autism.
See Autism Decisions and Background Information on the court's website. Just now, I wasn't able to connect to the background information or to today's rulings. I guess that news of this is spreading through the community of claimants and the servers are overwhelmed by thousands of people trying to connect at once.
