(TargetLiberty.org) – The lawsuits during this pandemic continue to mount. This time, it’s the owners of a Castle Rock, CO restaurant. They filed suit against Governor Jared Polis, saying he’s unfairly singling them out for political reasons. April and Jesse Arellano, who own C&C Breakfast & Korean Kitchen attracted attention when they opened for business on Mother’s Day. A video of the popular restaurant went viral.

After seeing the video, Colorado’s health department – urged on by Governor Polis – suspended the restaurant’s license on May 11, citing the state’s Food Protection Act. Now Polis is allowing other restaurants in the state to reopen – but the Arellanos remain closed.
The Food Protection Act deals with the safety and hygiene of restaurant kitchens. The Arellanos say it’s being misused under the state’s emergency powers to keep them shut down, just because Polis is annoyed at their defiance of his lockdown demands.
