NY Gov. Hochul Wants Her Quarantine Camps
Last hour appeal to retain her "Isolation and Quarantine Procedures"
By JOHN LEAKE
Last Friday, March 10, we had the honor to participate in a medical and constitutional freedom convention in Rochester, New York with attorney and Brownstone Institute Fellow, Bobbie Anne Cox, who was the lead plaintiff attorney in challenging New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s Third Reich style “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures.”
The case (Borrello v Hochul) went to the NY State Supreme Court, and on July 8, 2022, Judge Ronald Ploetz ruled that the “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” regulation is unconstitutional and “violative of New York State law as promulgated and enacted, and therefore null, void and unenforceable as a matter of law.”
At the event last Friday in Rochester, we applauded Ms. Cox for her victory against Governor Hochul and New York Attorney General, Letitia James. She graciously thanked us, but also reminded us that her adversaries had a few days left to appeal. As Ms. Cox just reported, appeal they did.
After forcing the readmission of COVID-19 positive patients into New York State nursing homes in the spring of 2020—thereby causing the largest COVID-19 mass casualty event in the country—New York State administrators decided they need greater emergency powers for responding to infectious disease outbreaks.
For some time, the governments of New York and California have been vying with each other to demonstrate the greatest contempt for the United States Constitution and the rights of the people it protects. With Governor Hochul’s “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures,” she has conclusively won the title.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul is the Worst Tyrant in the United States.
Ms. Cox’s report on this vitally important case is well worth reading in full.
