More bad news for antivaxers as court tosses out MMR claims

AP reports today that judges in a US vaccine compensation court have ruled that “It was abundantly clear that petitioners’ theories of causation were speculative and unpersuasive.”  The claims were reviewed by Special Masters for the court, which is part of the US Court of Claims.  The case is one of three in which a total of over 5,000 individual claims for compensation related to vaccines have been filed attempting to link vaccination to autism.

UPDATE: Washington Post now reports that the other two cases have also been tossed out. All 5,000 claims are now rejected.
