South Street Seaport House Sued Cuomo Citing Spanish Flu Now Can Depose Doctor Blog

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 21 –   Seaport House, a restaurant at 229 Front Street in the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan, sued NYS Governor Cuomo and NYC Mayor de Blasio for shutting down indoor dining. 

 On January 6 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Crotty held an oral argument on the restaurant's application for a Temporary Restraining Order. Inner City Press covered it.  

 The complaint contained a photo of the front page of the New York Post of December 12, with a green faced Cuomo in a Santa hat, "Cuomo the Grinch who stole Christmas as he bans indoor dining (again)."  

The lawyer for Governor Cuomo cited a 1903 case; Seaport House responded that restaurants weren't closed during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1917.  

Judge Crotty denied the TRO but set up a briefing schedule, including some discovery.

 In a January 21 proceeding Inner City Press also covered, Judge Crotty ruled that the plaintiffs can depose NYS Heath Department director of epidemiology Doctor Debra S. Blog, for three hours.

The case is d/b/a Seaport House (Hopkins Hawley LLC) et al. v. Cuomo et al., 20-cv-10932 (Crotty)
