Physician Group Sues Rep. Adam Schiff for Anti-Vaccine Pressure

February 6, 2020

The suit, filed January 15, 2020, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia claims Schiff is trying to censure anti-vaccine information on social media platforms.

The lawsuit follows a letter on Rep. Schiff's (D-CA) congressional website stating certain messages regarding vaccines are a direct threat to public health and asked social media companies for steps they are taking to provide "medically accurate information on vaccinations" to their users.  

  Social media companies responded promptly.
