The Center for American Liberty in collaboration with the Dhillon Law Group and the American Phoenix Project, filed a lawsuit in federal court this morning against Governor Newsom and others on behalf of five Californians who had life defining moments #RuinedByNewsom by denying their constitutional rights.
Plaintiff Monica Six of Orange County had her April 21, 2020 wedding #RuinedByNewsom. Plaintiffs Derek and LaurieSue Medlin have been denied access by Newsom, for all but 30 minutes twice a week to their special needs son who lives in a non-medical residential home that provides 24/7 care.Plaintiff Bailey Batten of San Diego had her high school graduation #RuinedByNewsom.
Plaintiff Jane Doe is a breast cancer survivor, her surgeon deems it necessary to schedule a reconstruction surgery. However, the surgeon cannot schedule this necessary surgery because Newsom is refusing hospitals to perform “cosmetic” procedures.
United States Attorney General Barr issued a memo on April 27, 2020 to all United States Attorneys to identify state directives that could be violating the Constitutional rights and civil liberties of individual citizens.
“The Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis,” Barr said in his memo. “If a state or local ordinance crosses the line from an appropriate exercise of authority to stop the spread of COVID-19 into an overbearing infringement of constitutional and statutory protections, the Department of Justice may have an obligation to address that overreach in federal court.”
The lawsuit asks for injunctive relief by the United States District Court for the Central District of California for violating the plaintiffs’ 5th and 14th amendments to the United States Constitution and ART. 1, §1 RIGHT TO LIBERTY of the California State Constitution.
