Lawsuit filed against Md. Gov. Hogan, other top Maryland officials over emergency coronavirus measures

A lawsuit against many of Maryland’s top officials is targeting laws crafted in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The suit, filed on Saturday, names Gov. Larry Hogan, Health Secretary Robert Neall, Deputy Secretary of Public Health Services Frances B. Phillips and Maryland State Police Superintendent Woodrow W. Jones, III, as its defendants.

Filed by a number of religious leaders, state delegates, and businesses, the lawsuit is asking the court to step in and stop the executive orders and other regulations they claim are violating the rights of the people of Maryland.

While the lawsuit had been under discussion for weeks, one of the suit’s plaintiffs, Maryland Del. Neil Parrott, said the decision to push forward this weekend came when Del. Dan Cox was told he needed to cancel his plans to speak at Saturday’s Open Maryland rally.
