PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)--Several Oregon businesses have threatened a class-action lawsuit against the state over COVID-19 restrictions implemented by Gov. Kate Brown to slow the spread of the virus.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports a lawyer representing the businesses argues that Oregon officials should create a plan to compensate small business owners for financial hardship caused by those restrictions.
The demand letter was filed on behalf of a Linn County salon, a Coos County bowling alley and the Wilsonville Family Fun Center, better known as Bullwinkle's.
Brown's office said Monday it doesn't comment on pending or potential litigation.
