Businesses that have been left behind from New York and New Jersey’s Phase Four opening are frustrated, angry and filing lawsuits. Gyms, yoga studio, movies and other still-shuttered concerns allege closures are arbitrary and are costing the business undue harm, potentially even their demise.
Government-issued orders to shut down due to coronavirus in March were largely executed across the board, which put owners on a level playing field. Understandably, some businesses are more vulnerable to the spread of the virus and we’ve been witnessing phased reopening.

We can expect to see a tsunami of litigation now and in the coming months.
