Anyone who follows alternative media or information sources like Jon Rappoport will know about this, but it bears repeating anyway. There have been two important events, a lawsuit in Ohio and and a district court ruling in Pennsylvania.
First, Ohio: Attorney Thomas Renz filed suit in Toledo against Governor Mike DeWine, and the opening words are as follow:
“In recent months, entire states have been imprisoned without due process and with the clear threat to impose such lockdowns again, interstate travel has been severely restricted, privacy rights have been devastated, numerous business takings without compensation, and many regulations being implemented without statutory process requirements under the guise of a health emergency that is roughly as dangerous as a seasonal influenza outbreak. The plaintiffs in this case have all been injured in various capacities by these unconstitutional actions, and without action by the Court, will be left without redress. More terrifying, without action by the Court, the Court will be setting future precedent that will allow states to withhold fundamental Constitutional rights, in violation of US Supreme Court precedent, circumventing the various levels of scrutiny applied to such rights, and justify such actions under public health emergency orders without subjecting those orders to any real review—just trust the bureaucrats because they are the experts.”
He is demanding that there be real science behind declared states of emergency, and not just someone’s word.
[Here is the full body of the Ohio complaint, 56 pages. The plaintiffs demand a jury trial, an important aspect given how corrupt elements of our judiciary are. Trial by a jury of our peers is one of our foremost and sacrosanct rights.
In Pennsylvania, a District Court judge ruled as follows:
AND NOW, This 14 day of September 2020, It Is Hereby Ordered that judgment be entered in favor of plaintiffs… For the reasons outlined in the Opinion filed by the Court the same day. The Court holds and declares: (1) that the congregate gathering limits imposed by Defendants’ mitigation orders violate the right of assembly enshrined in the First Amendment; (2) that the stay-at-home and business closure components of Defendants’ orders violate the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment; and (3) that the business closure components of Defendants’ orders violate the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment.
In essence, this says that a declared emergency cannot set aside the Constitution. This is important, as the people behind medical fascism have no respect for the document, but must pretend so in public. That offers leverage.
The importance of these cases cannot be overstated, and further, it should be a signal to initiate proceedings in all other states. It is going to take lawyers with moral courage, and it is understood that the power we are up against far exceeds that of judges (and especially of governors, who are only following orders from above). Nonetheless, this case and this ruling are the best news I have had since March 11 of this year.
I don’t follow mainstream news. Is any of this covered?
