The COVID-19 pandemic has created an extremely trying situation
for essential businesses, which have stepped up in amazing and
heroic ways to provide the goods and services that Californians
rely on daily.
But as the state eases quarantine restrictions and takes steps to
reopen, essential businesses face yet another devastating threat
to operations – predatory lawsuits. A wave of coming litigation
capitalizing on this pandemic threatens to further burden
essential businesses and greatly exacerbate economic recovery in
California and across the nation.
