An Amherst law firm has filed lawsuits on behalf of 38 provinces, representing hairdressers, hairdressers, beauticians, and beauty salons.
AMHRIST, New York – An Amherst law firm has sued 38 businesses across New York for “reopening the system.”
The lawsuit, filed by Hogan Willig’s lawyers, includes hairdressers, barbershops, beauticians, and plaintiffs representing Erie County.
The people named in the indictment include Governor Andrew Kumo, the New York State Senate and Council, the Department of State Health and Economic Development, the Empire State Development Corporation, Eri County Executive Mark Mark Poloncarz, and the County County Department of Health.
The lawsuit alleges that the services of the companies “do not pose a risk of the expansion of COVID-19, and there is no evidence to support such claims in the state or territory.”
The lawsuit also alleges that applicants will be subject to immediate and irreversible damages if they do not receive the required assistance, as the Orange Zone Directive states.
Many businesses in the Orange County were forced to close for weeks. In compliance with New York State COVID-19 guidelines.
However, earlier this week, Kumo said personal care services such as the gym and salon were already vulnerable to the expansion of COVID-19. “They are not major publishers,” he said during a press conference on Monday.
“The real difference between the yellow zone and the orange zone is home cooking and gymnasiums and salons,” Kumo said. Gyms and salons on numbers, we have so many protocols on gyms and salons, they are not major distributors on numbers.
Private care services are currently closed in most areas of the orange county of Eri County.
