U.S. government urged judge to dismiss Cholera lawsuit

New development regarding Cholera victims in Haiti. U.S. government urged a federal judge to dismiss lawsuit filed against the United Nations by a group of Haitians who claim peacekeepers caused the devastating cholera epidemic on October 23, 2014

Citing that the Union Nations was immune from the claims made against it of introducing the deadly strain of cholera that has killed 8,500 people Haiti, the United States government urged District Judge J. Paul Oetken to throw out the the lawsuit against the U.N. The suit, which was filed in 2013 hasn't been met with much attention from the Ban Ki-moon-run U.N., which refuses to be served and refuses to appear to answer the claims in Manhattan federal court.
