A Republican candidate for governor has filed a federal lawsuit against Washington Governor Inslee for violation of constitutional rights as a result of the ongoing lockdown. Here a link to the complaint:
In Michigan, the legislature has authorized a lawsuit against Governor Whitmer when the state of emergency expired without extension by the legislature, and the governor unilaterally extended it by executive order. It is not clear whether the lawsuit would be in state or in federal courts.
In the case of Washington state, the strain of coronavirus found along the west coast has a similar fatality rate to that of season flu. My opinion is that rejection of constitutional challenges would effectively repeal the bill of rights and allow state governors virtual dictators based using executive orders.
Curiously I have seen no lawsuits from the ACLU the alleged defender of civil liberties. Why are they missing in action?
Is the beginning of the end for the legal basis for lockdowns?
Or is it the beginning of the end for US Constitution?
