The governor of New York has gone back to court seeking permission to detain citizens of her state in quarantine camps – without notice, without rights and for as long as some state-chosen health officials say is needed.
The fight arose during COVID-19, when state officials decided they would adopt a new rule giving the state exactly that power.
A lawsuit ensued, and the result was that the detention plan was ruled unconstitutional.
Gov. Kathy Hochul, through Attorney General Letitia James, now has appealed the court's rejection of her "Isolation and Quarantine Procedures" scheme, according to a report from lawyer Bobbie Anne Flower Cox at the Brownstone Institute.
