Posted on Categories News

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced this week that it would be banning the use of electric shock devices.  These devices are often utilized to correct self-harming or aggressive behavior.

Trial Lawyers for Justice (TL4J) attorney Ben Novotny was the lead attorney in a case against the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Canton, Massachusetts, which the FDA ban is specifically targeting.  The practice of electric shock devices has been in use at this facility for decades on both children and adults who have intellectual or behavioral problems and disabilities.

To learn more about the practice of utilizing these shock devices and when it is used, watch the following video from FOX25 Boston:
