Litigating High Stakes Constitutional Rights Cases for Small Businesses in New York State,

our firm has represented plaintiffs in claims against state actors for constitutional rights violations. For example, when the state, at the direction of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, enacted emergency declarations during the COVID-19 crisis, our attorneys successfully argued that a number of these declarations were unconstitutional and caused irreparable harm to Erie County businesses.

In the case of Amherst Pizza & Ale House, LLC et al. v. Andrew M. Cuomo et al., our clients were granted a preliminary injunction allowing restaurants named in the suit to re-open under yellow zone restrictions with the Supreme Court Justice ruling: “Considering the record presented, this court cannot find evidence that the State had a rational basis to designate portions of Erie County as an Orange Zone on November 18, 2020.” And further stated, “Petitioners have also demonstrated that the Orange Zone designation has caused loss of revenue, unemployment, potential foreclosure and hardship upon Erie County residents.”
