California Restaurant Owner Sues Governor Over Draconian COVID-19 Restrictions

(RepublicanNews.org) – To say restaurant owners were hit hard by coronavirus-related restrictions would be a grave understatement. A Google search for the “percentage of restaurants permanently closed due to COVID-19” returns scores of articles from all over the country.

Sherman Oaks, California, restaurateur Angela Marsden appeared in a viral video calling out Democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti over their indiscriminate restrictions on restaurants. Little did she know that she would end up becoming the spokesperson for an industry ravaged by restrictions imposed by Democratic officials.

Marsden’s video showed caterers serving movie production workers meals in a parking lot tent set up about 20 feet from her restaurant. Newsom ruled film companies were essential businesses while shuttering local restaurants like hers.

Sick of the unfair government practices, Marsden filed a lawsuit against Newsom and other state officials on December 20 for depriving her of constitutionally-protected rights to assembly and equal protection. Her lawsuit asks the court to set aside restrictions so her restaurant can reopen.

The hypocrisy involved with closing local restaurants while allowing well-connected leftist Hollywood companies to pursue the almighty dollar is mind-numbing.
