Multiple businesses within Minneapolis have banded together to sue the city and Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey over the city's vaccine mandate, alleging that the COVID-19 requirement overreached authority. According to Fox 9:
"Plaintiffs in the complaint filed in Hennepin County Fourth Judicial Court yesterday include Bright Red Group, LLC (owners of Smack Shack), 90's Minneapolis, LLC (The Gay 90's), PJ. Hafiz Club Management, Inc. (Sneaky Pete's), Urban entertainment, LLC (Wild Greg's Saloon), Urban Forage, LLC (Urban Forage), and MikLin Enterprises, Inc. (Jimmy John's) and I & E Inc. (Bunkers Music Bar & Grill)."
The complaint states that the emergency resolution,
"is calculated and purposed to attempt to prod the general public toward vaccination… Minneapolis bars and restaurants are being used as pawns to further Mayor Frey's agenda of pushing for and convincing the public to get vaccinated.
"Whether the end being sought is noble, the scheme is forcing restaurants and bars to lose additional patrons and business that have already been reduced over the past two years and incur new costs and burdens to enforce the requirements," it continued.
