A New York City judge has officially taken away a Long Island father’s right to see his young daughter in person because he has not taken the experimental Covid-19 vaccine. Now in order to see his 3-year-old, the father must either get vaccinated or present a weekly PCR test in addition to a biweekly antigen test within 24 hours of a scheduled visit.
The judge – Matthew Cooper – who is presiding over the bitter custody dispute, called the yet-to-be-named father a “danger” to the child and specifically cites “conspiracy theories,” “misinformation,” and “muddled notions of individual liberty” as the bogus reasoning behind stripping his rights away.
“Here, in-person parental access by the defendant is not in the child’s best interests, and there are exceptional circumstances that support its suspension.
The dangers of voluntarily remaining unvaccinated during access with a child while the COVID-19 virus remains a threat to children’s health and safety cannot be understated.
Unfortunately, and to my mind, incomprehensibly, a sizable minority, seizing upon misinformation, conspiracy theories, and muddled notions of ‘individual liberty,’ have refused all entreaties to be vaccinated.”
The father has already had Covid-19 and recovered – which has been proven to provide better immunity than taking any of the rushed vaccines – but Judge Cooper did not factor that into his decision before handing down his ruling. Instead, Cooper was too busy playing political activist from the bench. The only ones trafficking in misinformation are the crazed leftists who are pushing these vaccine mandates and denying that natural immunity exists.
Not to mention, the person being “protected” from her father is three years old – children have effectively zero risk of death to this virus. In fact, they are the least affected group of people, with a recovery rate that is around 99.5-99.9%.
But, according to Bolshevik Judge Cooper, this father is a “danger,” and a conspiracy theorist.
Lloyd Rosen, the attorney representing the father, fired back after Cooper’s decision and explained the father’s reasoning behind not taking the vaccine.
“My client is not a conspiracy theorist. He has concerns about the vaccine. He’s heard about side effects. He once had a bad reaction to the flu vaccine.
This judge must feel that 80 million Americans who aren’t vaccinated are placing their children at imminent risk or harm and, therefore, the courts should intervene and remove those children from their parents. That is an absurd position to take.”
Rosen also said his client has not decided if he is going to appeal and had already rejected the offer to submit to mandatory testing. The father is seeking to have a full hearing on the matter, but his requests have been denied so far by Cooper.
This is the second time in recent months that a crazed left-wing judge has taken away visitation rights for an unvaccinated parent during a custody battle. The last time this happened, a Cook County, Illinois Judge restricted an unvaccinated mother from seeing her kids in person.
The judge in that case, James Shapiro, was forced to recuse himself from the case because of the public backlash to his decision.

Judge Cooper, unlike Judge Shapiro, is an extremely high-profile juror. He has previously ruled over several divorce cases that involve A-listers like Robert De Niro and Uma Thurman. His blatantly political statements in his decision demonstrate that he cannot be impartial or fair over this case. At a minimum, he should recuse himself just like Shapiro did.
