Judge Denies Injunction Against NYC Bris Rules

01/11/2013

New York City’s requirement that a mohel must obtain written consent from parents to peform oral suction during a bris will not be suspended because of a court challenge, a federal judge ruled on Thursday.

“As enacted, the regulation does no more than ensure that parents can make an informed decision whether to grant or deny such consent,” wrote Judge Nami Reice Buchwald of U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
