On July 22, 2022, the Appeals Court recently ruled against the plaintiffs in a lawsuit claiming that male circumcision is a waste of taxpayer money. The case was filed in July 2020 based on a unique Massachusetts state law and pits Massachusetts taxpayers against the Massachusetts Secretary of Health and Human Services. Andrew Delaney and Peter Adler are the lawyers in the case. The court’s ruling can be found here. A request for appellate review can be filed up until August 12, 2022 but unfortunately the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court can decline to hear the case.

Our hats are off to the legal team and all parties involved in this case and we wish them the very best.
