Court Victory Obtained for Over 90 Bars and Restaurants in Legal Battle Over New York State Curfew
Several media outlets have reported on the recent court victory Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria obtained on behalf of its clients in a case against New York State regarding an 11:00 PM curfew imposed on bars and restaurants.
On Saturday, February 27th, a State Supreme Court Justice ruled in favor of more than 90 bars and restaurants from Western New York that pursued legal action to lift a curfew that was imposed on their business. Paul J. Cambria, Jr. and Todd J. Aldinger of Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria served as co-counsel, representing the bars and restaurants in this case along with attorneys from HoganWillig.
In November 2020, a curfew was enacted on bars and restaurants in New York State through an executive order by Governor Andrew Cuomo. On February 27, 2021, Judge Timothy Walker issued a preliminary injunction, which removed the curfew for bars and restaurants involved in this case. These bars and restaurants can now resume the business operations they had in place prior to the state’s executive order.
