Today I spoke at a symposium on education. My speech focused on government overreach and how it is so severely and negatively affecting our daily lives. Of course I opened with a brief discussion of my “quarantine camp” lawsuit, where I explained how Governor Hochul and her DOH grossly overreached when they breached separation of powers, took the power of the NYS Legislature, and made an illegal regulation that allowed them to lock people down in their homes or lock people up in a quarantine camp without any proof of illness, for however long they wanted, regardless of age, with no way for you to get out once they had you quarantined. I explained how my plaintiffs (Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Chris Tague, Assemblyman Mike Lawler, and the citizens’ group Uniting NYS) and I defeated Hochul and her DOH, and got their unconstitutional regulation struck down by the court. The Judge in our case noted in part of his decision that:
Involuntary detention is a severe deprivation of individual liberty, far more
egregious than other health safety measures, such as requiring mask wearing at certain venues. Involuntary quarantine may have far reaching consequences such as loss of income (or employment) and isolation from family.
He then ruled their “quarantine camp” regulation to be “violative of New York State law as promulgated and enacted, and therefore null, void and unenforceable as a matter of law.”
