Ninety pubs and restaurants suing New York country above a coronavirus-associated 11 p.m. closing curfew have been permitted to remain open till their regular 4 a.m. final season this weekend following a judgment Saturday night with a state Supreme Court justice.
Steve Cohen, a lawyer with law firm Hogan-Willig, which represents the plaintiffs, said the company's customers were delighted with the choice. The company had contended that the curfew wasn't supported by mathematics.
"It is most likely the last-ditch chance for our customers to have the ability to acquire life breathed back to them.
"It is most likely the last-ditch chance for our customers to have the ability to acquire life breathed back to them. They were hanging by a thread and Judge Walker gave them a lifeline."
Walker's ruling applies only to the pubs and restaurants participating in the suit, WIVB reported.
Before this month, Hogan-Willig sued Gov. Andrew Cuomo, calling for a quote to make the nation comply with its December petition for access to state information on transmission of the coronavirus.
Cohen said in the time the company wanted evidence that the nation's coronavirus restrictions were warranted by scientific information, WIVB reported.
Cuomo's office reacted in the time by saying that it had been withholding comment until it could review the litigation, and claimed any claim of this government engaging in"deception or obfuscation" was"just wrong."
