N.J. Republicans sue Murphy to force him to reopen small businesses

New Jersey Republicans are suing Gov. Phil Murphy to reopen small businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Democratic governor was out of bounds when he “arbitrarily” decided some businesses were not essential, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday in state Superior Court in Cape May, and Murphy’s decision to shutter part of the state has caused “irreparable harm to innumerable small businesses.”

Continued closure was “not backed by science at this point,” state Sen. Mike Testa, R-Cumberland, said Thursday during on online press conference, especially since big stores like Walmart had been allowed to remain open.

A barber shop in Sussex County was among the businesses in the suit asking to reopen.
