Group of Jacksonville Attorneys Sue to Block GOP Convention

A group of attorneys from Jacksonville, Florida are suing to stop the Republican National Convention from being held in the city.

According to The Hill:

A group of attorneys in Jacksonville, Fla., filed a lawsuit on Wednesday to block the Republican National Convention from taking place in the city next month.

The lawsuit, filed in Duval County, points to several arguments why the city should not host the event as Florida’s case numbers continue to spike, saying the convention would be “a nuisance injurious to the health [and] welfare” of the community.

“To avoid community spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health and welfare of Plaintiffs and the community, it is necessary and essential that all super spreader events where large numbers of people congregate in close proximity indoors not occur,” the suit reads.

The attorneys filed the lawsuit days after Florida set a record for the most COVID-19 cases confirmed in a single day in a state during the pandemic, with 11,458 cases on Saturday. Overall, Florida has documented 223,783 total cases and 3,889 fatalities, and Duval County accounts for 10,439 of those cases and 70 of the deaths, according to state data.

The RNC has stated that they will follow proper health protocols and are committed to health and safety.

When the RNC hit the snag, did the game warden let them keep it? 😉

All conservatives attending should reinforce their immunity with L-Lysine, zinc, C and D3 supplements. Nobody will get sick.
Do his again in the fall and enjoy a SARS free election and holiday season!

The article left out one very important word. It’s a group of LIBERAL attorneys, with a political agenda…

The communist democrats are running scared. They are petrified of a fair debate, a Republican convention, or anything President Trump tries to do. I sure hope this bites them in the rear come election time.

Maybe these same people should file a lawsuit to stop all of these stupid protesters since they’re the ones spreading it. These masks don’t help if you cough or sneeze it goes right thru it. People keep playing with them touching their face and the mask. None of these people filing lawsuits care about the spreading of covid they only care because it’s the RNC.

And the arseholes are at it again. Is there no end to this? or do we need to start eliminating these stupid idiotic people from the U.S?
Liberal attorneys. Bet if Obama was holding his DNC in Florida, they’d roll out the red carpet for him, and anyone, anyone that would dare sue him would find themselves on Hillary’s list of targets. So sad….what Americas turned into. Yet the protestors can do whatever they want, didn’t hear about these attorneys suing anybody over that. Hope these attorneys get the virus.

Test kits may give false positive if you had the flu shot or for no reason. Test kits maybe contaminated with the Corona virus. Don’t trust any numbers. They are pretending a surge.

Our Presidential election and the Conventions are some of the most important things Americans can do. If we can go to Walmart with masks on, we can certainly attend a Convention. Make it outdoors if they have a problem but HOLD IT! Biden can do the same with his Commie convention. Otherwise, this is DIRECT DOMESTIC INTERFERENCE with our election process and much worse than anything the Commie Dems thought the Russians did in our 2016 election.

Hold the RNC outside. Masks and social distancing and shove it where it hurts th dems. How come they aren’t protesting BLM. I saw them on TV. Most aren’t wearing masks. Are they immune?

Thousand of bussed in Rioters and Protestors demonstrating against white people is OK; but a Republican Convention in an election year needs to be shut down so Black attendees can not speak at it?
That’s really why the DNC is paying these lawyers to go to court and get the GOP convention shut down – COVID is just a convenient blame.

So, did they just finally admit the virus was an attempt to cut the President off from his voters? Sure sounds like it.
