Some Placer County restaurants sue state over COVID-19 restrictions

Like many small business owners across the state, Ivan Flowers knows the pain of keeping his restaurant, Brass Tap in Roseville, alive during a pandemic. "There are a lot of restaurants that had to fold. They don't have a voice; they can't survive the pandemic," Flowers said. Flowers joins around twenty Placer County business operators joining together this week to file a lawsuit against the state of California. The group, known as the Placer County Restaurant & Bar Coalition, is calling Gov. Gavin Newsom's mandated public health restrictions on small restaurants unconstitutional. See more in the video above.
