Governor Newsom is being sued by over 50 Northern California bay area restaurants and wineries over his states in-person dining ban.
Tomás Aragón, director of the California Public Health Department, is also named in the lawsuit.
The Wine Country Coalition for Safe Reopening filed the suit Tuesday and per KTLA ” alleges that the governor and the state public health department have not provided scientific evidence showing that outdoor dining is more dangerous than other permitted activities, such as shopping in indoor malls and working on film sets.”
The report adds “citing uneven application of the restrictions, the group claims the state is violating equal protection laws afforded by the California Constitution, among other violations.”
The lawsuit is just one of many problems Newsom is facing from disgruntled Californians not happy with his leadership.
More than 1.1 million have signed a petition calling for Newsom to be recalled as Governor of California.
