WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in the case about side effects of certain vaccines.
Parents who say their daughter allegedly suffered serious health problems from a childhood vaccine are trying to persuade the high court to allow them to sue the manufacturer.
This case could open drug makers to a flood of lawsuits over the side effects of vaccines and a link to autism, including families of autistic children who believe there is a link between mercury-based vaccines and the disorder.
The Obama administration and drug companies say these claims should be decided by a special vaccine court that was set up 24 years ago to shield companies from most lawsuits.
