BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – New York State Supreme Court Judge Henry Nowak has ruled that restaurants involved in the state lawsuit allow it to reopen under the restrictions of the New York State Yellow District.
Attorneys for the innkeepers and the state filed a lawsuit against Judge Nowak on Friday, who ruled nearly 90 taverns and the restaurant owners named in the lawsuit could proceed under color district regulations. Yellow
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of a number of hospitality businesses in Erie County, challenges Governor Cuomo to devise data science to justify his micro-cluster regulation, which they claim violates constitutional rights as business owners.
Judge Nowak issued a provisional order allowing named establishments to open with limited seating capacity until 10:00 p.m., but not the final response.
The state could still move to cancel some or all of the innkeeper’s requests. A hearing is scheduled for January 19.
