HIV and Dojos

Postby RACastanet » Sun Feb 14, 1999 11:37 pm

To all: After a year and an appeal, a judge has finally ruled that a Richmond area dojo was correct in not allowing an HIV infected youth to participate in contact work with other children. Also, it was ruled that the dojo was not legally required to change its training methods to eliminate potential contact with blood.

I wonder how much that cost the dojo owner in legal fees?
