A group of wineries and restaurants launch a lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom (D).

The ‘Wine Country Coalition for Safe Reopening‘ filed the lawsuit Tuesday. It alleges Newsom did not provide scientific evidence to show outdoor dining is more dangerous to public health than other permitted activities.

The lawsuit demands the governor open outdoor dining or prove that it is unsafe. According to business owners, the state made a false claim that their decisions are based on science.

“We’ve had devastating wildfires this year that were down the street from the hotel,” Carl Dene, owner of Brannan Cottage Inn, said. “We lost weeks of business because of that; we have lost months of business because of COVID. It’s been a really bad roller coaster.”
