Restaurant wins lawsuit against Pennsylvania COVID-19 lock down fines

October 20, 2020

The fallout from the unconstitutional totalitarian COVID-19 lock down orders continues to roll in as we learn of more and more businesses which are not going to be able to recover. It seems like every day we read stoies of businesses which would have otherwise thrived going under forever. One industry that has been hit particularly hard, not only during the total lock down but also in the very restrictive reopening guidelines, is the restaurant business.

One family owned restaurant in Pennsylvania decided it was not going to go down without a fight and defied lock down orders to reopen. For this decision Taste of Sicily was hit with thousands of dollars in fines. The family filed a lawsuit and now we are learning they have been found not guilty and will not have to pay the fines. Here is more:

A Pennsylvania restaurant that was hit with nearly $10,000 in state citations for reopening their business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s coronavirus restrictions was found not guilty after months of continuing to fight against the administration.

Taste of Sicily in Lebanon County attracted the support of several local officials over their decision to reopen their restaurant in May after having initially shut down for two months in obedience with state orders. The restaurant left it up to customers to decide whether they want to wear masks or social distance, and were cited for violating Wolf’s restrictions.

The restaurant, which is co-owned by siblings Michael Mangano and Christine Wartluft, was found not guilty. Their lawyer, Eric Winter, told he Daily Caller that Wolf’s and the Department of Health’s Orders couldn’t be punished under Pennsylvania criminal law

“It is very questionable as to whether the law allows the Department of Health to issue orders as it did. It is not possible for a criminal penalty to be imposed for violating the orders,” he told the Caller.

This is the second blow delivered to Tom Wolf and the People’s Republic of Pennsylvania, back in September his restrictions were ruled unconstitutional.

Many of these governors who have usurped this power are not going to give it back willingly, it is time for people to stand up and say enough is enough and this is proof that we can win if we stand up and fight.

    Meanwhile Roberts rules with the left in corrupting the PA voting system. Votes count three days after the election. If it doesn’t have a postmark it counts anyway,

    You are absolutely correct. We MUST stand up and speak out against the violations to our civil liberties. These “governors” aka power mongering dictators must be stopped. Unfortunately, too often their opposing candidate at election time isn’t much better. I understand why many wouldn’t want to run for office (seeing the dirt they are pulled through) but we truly need strong patriots in office now more than ever.

      They are not going to stop until they realize it is hurting them. We should have been fighting this all along and hopefully it’s not too late.

        I know…I think the fear of Covid-19 and not having enough or consistent valid Information made the masses cower too quickly. But, then again, perhaps that was the plan all along…
