We won a Landmark Case yesterday in Court, in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court, of the State of Florida. Dragonfly got her Social Security Benefits retroactive up to 6 months after her initial diagnosis in 2006 and MEDICARE retroactive 6 months from the loss of her insurance.
I submitted a Letter from Ginny Waite Brown to the CDC, all Documentation, Deborah Auschullers Collembola study and even Joes research. THANK YOU JOE KELEHER, BECAUSE JOE DOESN’T WRITE SLOW, HE MAKES SENSE.
It took 4 years of work and the judge rendered the verdict in 8 minutes and 50 seconds. He said Morgellons three times. People have got to save every medical record and any information calling them delusional, take photographs and save them. The Judge just happened to be here on assignment from Tulsa and her file was 5 inches thick.
WE WON….WE WON.
Our Attorney knew more about this disease than any attorney and his brief was impeccable, sensible, no conspiracy theories. HE WAS A SAINT sent from God. After our win I stood in the parking lot and cried for a half an hour and just hugged the Attorney. It appears he asked to take the case because Dragonfly was a local personality and he had seen her during her well years on TV. His comment, when I asked him what he thought was, "The way these people have been treated is horrific and it is appalling."
We have a conference with a nationwide law firm next Tuesday and I will be able to ascertain how many other cases they can take on. Now that we have set a Florida precedence on a non existent (according to many Doctors) disease, we just trumped the CDC. We had photos, Raman graphs, disks documenting her progressive deterioration, the Body Bugs Films (thank you Patrick Fraser) and every lab and also doctors notes where she was called DOP. Dragonfly was exceptional, honest, and exhausted, a win for one, we hope will be a win for all.
