Anti-Science 'Expert Witnesses' Deemed Unsuitable In Connecticut Mask Trial
A Connecticut judge said two expert witnesses were unqualified to testify in court in a case that challenges guidelines requiring masks to be worn in school.
The lawsuit filed by the Connecticut Freedom Alliance group argues that guidelines violate the state Constitution and infringe on a student’s right to education.
Testimonies from psychologist Andrew Kaufman and James Meehan Jr., an Oklahoma-based eye doctor, revealed Kaufman believes the coronavirus does not exist, and Meehan has not done any work on COVID-19.
The judge says both men lack specific expertise and hold an anti-science view that makes them unsuitable to speak on the case.
The group has until Monday to find new expert witnesses before the case can move forward.
