 Another rejection but parents maintain vaccine is linked to their son's death 1. The long legal discussion about whether or not Christopher met the “minimum 80% of disablement” test before his death needed for the case to go ahead. This discussion involved the two legal teams but not Christopher’s parents. 2. The audio recording equipment was not working and no stenographer was present. The official record was therefore taken in handwritten notes by the judge. 3. The video link with the Coulters’ expert witness in America was of poor quality with audio and time delay problems. 4. Late evidence from one of the government’s expert witnesses was accepted just two working days before the hearing. This enabled him to attend an act as an additional expert witness at very short notice and gave little time for the Coulters to read and respond to his report. 5. The two experts who gave evidence on the government’s behalf have strong links with the government’s vaccination programme. Dr Baxter did not declare this to the panel in advance.

 Paralysed children's legal fight over
MMR Shane Lambert and Fadi Khawaja both developed transverse
myelitis - an incurable disease of the spine - after being given the
injection. Shane, now 11, received the MMR jab at 13 months
old, and is now doubly incontinent and wheelchair bound. Fadi, now
22, was given the vaccine when he was 10. He can now only walk small
distances using crutches and suffers a range of debilitating health
problems. "Fadi was perfectly healthy and running around until he had
the vaccine," his mother said.....Mario Arturo Rodriguez, from
Washington, developed transverse myelitis after he had the jab at one
year old. Now seven, he was given the money from the American
government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to pay for a
lifetime of round-the-clock-care.
James Merow, the senior judge in Mario's case, echoed these views when he concluded: "There is a wealth of persuasive support....for the proposition that the MMR vaccine can cause transverse myelitis.." But the Department of Health said there is "no established link" between the MMR vaccine and transverse myelitis
