People who were quarantined in their homes during the Ebola crisis of 2014 filed a lawsuit against Gov. Dannel Malloy and other state health officials yesterday, according to the Connecticut Mirror.
Multiple plaintiffs, including two graduate students from Yale and a Liberian family, are charging that the policy set by the state was unconstitutional, as none of the plaintiffs exhibited any signs of Ebola contact before being quarantined for 21 days at their homes with police guard, the Connecticut Mirror said.
According to the suit, members of Assunta Nimley-Phillips' family visiting from Liberia were immediately quarantined once arriving in the state despite having not come into contact with the virus, reported the Connecticut Mirror.
Along with Malloy, other officials named in the suit include both former and current state Department of Public Health Commissioners Jewel Mullen and Raul Pino, the Connecticut Mirror noted.
