Peoria Co. (ECWd) -
The Peoria County Public Health Department is the recipient of a Cease & Desist letter from Tom DeVore, the attorney that has become known statewide for standing up to ongoing harassment and intimidation tactics from State Agencies and Public Health Departments.
On March 15, 2020, we outlined the specific obligations a health department has in order to force the closure of business in this article. If you have not read that article we urge you to because it lays out what the Public Health Departments MUST do in order to close down anyone's business.
On April 30, 2020, we published yet another article that outlined the road map for businesses to open, which many businesses took full advantage of.
Since those publications, Mr. DeVore has assisted hundreds in protecting their rights and holding government accountable.
As we predicted in this article March 29, 2020, State and local governments across the country are being hit with lawsuits for violating people's rights.
We encourage each and every business owner contacted by any State agency or local public health department with threats against their opening to contact their attorney and share all of this information as it is clear, the State and Local authorities are abusing their powers and walking a very fine line of criminal intimidation.
