Steven Hyman of Mclaughlin & Stern Hired to Represent Kaci Hickox in Ebola Quarantine Case

Fri 31 October 2014 News Releases

Steve Hyman from the firm of McLaughlin & Stern has been hired to represent Kaci Hickox, the nurse who had been working with Doctors without Borders in West Africa.

On Friday, the NY Times states that “Less than a day after restricting the movements of a nurse who treated Ebola victims in West Africa, a judge in Maine has lifted the measures, rejecting arguments by the State of Maine that a quarantine was necessary to protect the public.

Ms. Hickox’s lawyers said the decision is likely to end a standoff between the nurse, who has resisted being quarantined on the grounds that she is not symptomatic for Ebola, and the state authorities, who say that a quarantine is needed to ensure the public’s safety.”

Mr. Hyman has also been interviewed by:

CNN’s Anderson Cooper
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes
CBS’s Michelle Miller
