Representative Keith Kidwell is pleased to announce that a lawsuit has been filed in North Carolina State Court to force the reopening of Health Clubs, Gyms, Spas, and Karate Dojos. The governor has had these small businesses closed for two months. Governor Cooper fails to realize is that they are not there as social clubs. They are an essential part of the health and well being of hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians. They are, in fact, where many go to get rehabilitative training and access. The clientele includes people recovering from surgeries, strokes, heart attacks, and many more ailments, as well as stress relief and mental health. We seek to reopen these centers immediately. They are an essential part of our community.

Cary attorney Chuck Kitchen filed suit today with Case history from several North Carolina courts showing that business owners have an inalienable right to operate their businesses. One of the clearest cut cases is State vs. Harris from 1940, where the court ruled in favor of Harris. As I the counts ruling on churches on a constitutional basis, the claim states that there are many violations of the North Carolina constitution. Illegal taking, the right to the fruits of your labor and others. This injustice to the business owners cannot be permitted to continue, and we are confident the court will find in favor of the business owners as it did with the churches.
