Even though the courtrooms are largely empty, with specific cases being put on hold while officials go into quarantine, that doesn’t mean the legal world has stopped. On the contrary, reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic
have now had enough of an impact on businesses, customers, and workers that attorneys are seeing a flurry of pandemic-related lawsuits, those alleging fraud, misconduct, or even neglect.
According to a report from Newsweek:
The emerging lawsuits pertaining to COVID-19, many of them class-action complaints, span a wide variety of industries. For instance, New York Sports Clubs has been sued for allegedly defrauding members during statewide gym shutdowns. In another case, Inovio Pharmaceuticals was sued for allegedly “falsely claiming that [it] had developed a vaccine” for COVID-19. And the state of Alaska was sued by a union of around 8,000 state employees for allegedly subjecting them to “health and safety risks” during the pandemic.
