A federal judge today denied issuing a temporary injunction that would have allowed 44 unvaccinated children to go back to class at the Green Meadow Waldorf School, citing Rockland County's "unprecedented measles outbreak."

After the ruling, many parents in the court room embraced. "Preventing my child from being with his class, his teacher, his classroom, has had a significant social and psychological impact," said a parent of a 4-year old preschooler who declined to give her name. "He is confused, given his young age, about why he isn't allowed on his campus," she said, her voice wavering.
