Liberty University Amicus Brief Opposes VA Gov. Northam COVID-19 Controls on Commonwealth

admin Constitutional Law, Health Law, Virginia Supreme Court

Since March, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has imposed a draconian set of rules and regulations on the People and businesses of Virginia, ostensibly to address the COVID-19 threat. Yet he has refused to call the Virginia General Assembly into session to get authority to impose controls. Under his theory, his power is virtually limitless, and could continue into next year, and beyond. Today we filed an amicus brief for Liberty University supporting a challenge brought by a Fredericksburg, Virginia restaurateur and a Loudoun County wedding location owned by John Tigges — Zion Springs.
