Not that I've heard of, anyway. Are US Courts even open?
Is this supposed quarantine authority the executives around the country are using and abusing, unlimited in scope and length, not subject to revision by any court or legislature, ever?
When did we consent to that?
And we can challenge it using the ebola quarantine lawsuits.
Kaci Hickoxs settlement agreement with Christie Administration creates quarantine Bill of Rights that can serve as a model for all states
You’d have to be arrested or file a lawsuit.
I don’t see the point in filing a federal lawsuit unless you ask for a Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction, that will give you relief right away. By the time the slow-grinding wheels of justice get around to dealing with your case on a normal trial calendar, of which there aren’t any because the courts are crawling even slower now, the lock down will be over.
We no longer live in the American Republic governed by the constitution. Just as in the recent coup attempt, the courts would immediately dismiss the case for some reason or another.
At this point the courts are crooked and simply write whatever policy they want into legalese and point to some tortured version of the commerce clause or something similar to justify any policy they please.
Use the $500 for something you want.
I predict you will only create a modern court precedent that government can do this. Backing up the quarantine precedents that already exist dating back to 1663.
You need to pick your battles, and file a lawsuit when a government tries this and there is NOT a clear and present danger such as COVID-19.
How do you take a case to the courtroom when the courthouse is closed?
governors and the president have broad emergency powers. Best of luck.,
except for planned parenthood ... the get their injunctions!
Even lawyers know when to Shelter In Place.
Maybe we should get some illegals to apply for relief?
Why isn’t Comey in jail?
Example: The governor’s power in Wisconsin. Each state spells it out differently.
The only one that can overturn a president’s power is the congress according to the emergency powers act of 1974.
“It only costs $500.00 to file a federal lawsuit. Anyone wants to chip in?”
Who is your lawyer?
What is the lawsuit to claim?
What precedents exist for that claim?
Broad UNCHECKED powers. Again, when did we consent to this? Tomorrow I can claim there’s an alien invasion emergency and declare martial law?
I AM under house arrest!
Sure they have. All the abortion clinics are up and running.
here are the governors powers state by state, Unchecked and broad are two different things. The check on the president is congress Don’t know about the states.
Uh no you can’t claim it till you’re governor or president.
