Category: 
Body: 

Court ruling based on Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905), and subsequent New Hampshire cases adopting and following the reasoning in Jacobson: In short, these cases adopt Cicero’s maxim salus populi suprema lex esto (the health of the people is the supreme law) and explain that the health of the many overrule the rights of the few in the context of preventing or combating the spread of infectious disease where the prescribed treatment is not merely a pretext to rob the individual or his or her rights.
