New York City restaurants file $2 billion lawsuit over COVID-19 restrictions

September 4, 2020

New York City is still not allowing restaurants to open for indoor dining even though Winter is just around the corner and many of them face the prospect of closing their doors forever if they are not allowed to open. In fact Bill de Blasio has stated he has no plan to allow restaurants to open indoor dining anytime soon.

You can imagine the strain this is putting on restaurant owners who are just trying to survive these totalitarian measures. Well, now 300 restaurant owners are trying to fight back by filing a $2 billion lawsuit against New York City. Here is more:

More than 300 restaurants have joined a class-action lawsuit seeking over $2 billion in damages due to the city’s ongoing indoor dining ban. Il Bacco — a restaurant on the border of Little Neck, Queens and Nassau County — filed the lawsuit on Friday in the state Supreme Court in Manhattan, alleging that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive orders have violated its constitutional rights. In the suit, the Italian restaurant alleges that it can’t serve diners indoors, while its neighbors in Long Island — just 500 feet away — can. “According to Gov. Cuomo, it is dangerous to eat at [Il Bacco] in Little Neck, Queens, but it is safe to dine indoors a few hundred feet east,” the suit says. As of Monday, Crain’s reports that at least 337 restaurateurs have signed onto the class-action suit against the city and state.

Can you imagine owning a restaurant in New York City and being told you can not open while only 500 feet away restaurants are thriving?! This is simply not justifiable by any means. It is time for the people of New York to start fighting back and hopefully this is just the beginning.

    Congratulations to the restaurants for standing up to this power grab. We have to hurt the Left the way they hurt us—in the pocket.

      I agree! I wish they would all say screw it and open up, let the NYC gestapo come in and shut them all down. Challenge them to do something and see what happens.

        I’m surprised the mafia restaurants are allowing this – unless their getting kickbacks like Cuomo.
        “Give 8 million people a gift and quit!’: NYC police union boss tells Mayor Bill de Blasio to step down by sundown because he has ‘ruined’ the Big Apple” this was on the 28th.
        I thought he was kicked out! 👹 Globalist workers – Gov. Cuomo needs to be arrested and charged for the destruction he ‘prompted’ and still is allowing.
        This might show people who were taught ‘people are good and not sinners’ the truth of the fallenness of mankind and the 🐍 💩 leading them down the 💀pit ☠️

        I never thought about the idea of kickbacks to the restaurant owners but that would not surprise me!
