A federal judge has dismissed federal claims by nurse Kaci Hickox that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and state health officials violated her constitutional rights when they quarantined her after she had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa in 2014.
But one of Hickox’s attorneys, Steve Hyman, says two state claims in the lawsuit can move forward for false imprisonment and defamation.
“Against Gov. Christie, who called her sick and that she was ill and therefore was properly detained, when in fact she was not ill,” he says.
