Sue the Government for the Lockdowns (Martial Law)
« on: May 09, 2020, 11:44:52 pm »

The Pigs in Power found a way to have Martial Law without the people realizing it. Didn't they!

Knowing from my sources that the virus is not what it's made out to be, not a virus pandemic, I've been thinking of class action lawsuits. Then I saw this article today.

How To Sue Your Governor
https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/05/allan-stevo/how-to-sue-your-governor/

I just skimmed through it. I've done a little legal research before, so I had some of my own ideas already.

The science behind the virus is very shoddy. Mainstream science is shoddy in general. It's not based much on scientific method, but on bias from the government and foundations etc that provide grants for scientific research.

So a lawsuit should shed light on the shoddy science.

I think it should also consider the cost/benefit ratio of lockdowns etc.

Readers seldom discuss on this forum any more, but if anyone would like to discuss lawsuits and other possible activism, you're welcome to do so here.

Free Staters have apparently been somewhat active in Concord, NH. Maybe a good percentage of them may like to pursue more effective activism. Civil disobedience is probably worthwhile, which is what the activism in Concord was. Maybe go to Manchester and Nashua etc and encourage businesses to open or join in protests. Things like that.

Got other or better ideas or additions?

Main Points of the Article

Here are some first steps that can be taken to help set a lawsuit into motion.

Step 1: Decide: Pro Se, Public Interest & Pro Bono, Or Your Own Private Attorney

Step 2: Keep Organized with a spreadsheet etc, with columns for the lawyer name, URL, phone number, dates you’ve reached out, and responses

Step 3: Identify Potential Lawyers; make a fairly long list on the spreadsheet
Though the list is from 2011, Walter Block compiled a fantastic, exhaustive list of libertarian legal theorists toward the end of the linked post https://www.lewrockwell.com/2011/06/walter-e-block/andrew-napolitano-for-chief-justice/

Step 4: Create A Form Letter That Says Enough, But Not Too Much
Until a lawyer represents you, there’s no need to tell them your deepest secrets on this topic. Keep the form letter short and to the point: you are seeking representation, you see clear precedent, are they interested?
If you’d like a template, something like this might work:
Dear First name Last name,
I’m looking for a pro bono attorney to represent me on a public interest case regarding the Covid-19 order in my state, (insert State).
The New York Supreme Court has previously ruled against widespread quarantines, establishing a clear precedent in the 1856 New York Supreme Court case The People vs. Peter W. Roff, mentioned by a think tank fellow recently in this linked article. I wonder if there may be other meaningful precedent on this topic.
Would you be willing to represent me?
If you would not, can you recommend someone who might want to?
Thank you.
First name Last name
City, State
Email address

Step 5: Follow Through

Step 6: Find A Few Different Interested Lawyers
The corona bans are illegal and unconstitutional. They are executive and bureaucratic over-reach. Many lawyers out there will happily take on a case like yours.

Step 7: Choose A Lawyer

Step 8: Focus On Your Next Instance Of Civil Disobedience
