ALBANY – Minnesota Attorney General has filed a lawsuit on Sunday night against a chain of six bars and restaurants in central Minnesota that has promised to reopen on Monday or in the coming days in violation of the Minnesota Executive Governor’s Secure Standing Order.
Shady’s Bar is located in Albany, Burtrum, Cold Spring, New Munich, Rice and St. Martin. The lawsuit also mentioned the name of the owner Kris Schiffler individually as defendants.
Schiffler said in a Facebook post that he intended to open his Albany location on Monday afternoon and could open another location later this week.
The Attorney General said this was the first enforcement action taken by his office to prevent the early resumption of consumption in places in bars and restaurants. The Attorney General’s Office is seeking emergency assistance from the court to prevent six “Shady’s” trunks from violating Executive Orders.
Schiffler faces a $ 25,000 fine per day per location.
House Republicans, led by Kresha representative, R-Little Falls, recently sending a letter for the Attorney General Keith Ellison calling him to stop threatening business, faced with the choice between opening and going out of business, with large fines and legal action. Rep. Kresha released the following statement about the lawsuit.
“It’s shocking that the Attorney General will bring small business owners to court just for trying to save his business,” Kresha said. “Business has been following the governor’s mandate for months now, and many have been pushed to the point where they will never open the door again. The fact that our country’s top lawyer is trying to sue business because its existence is unacceptable. This is a government beyond the limits in the extreme. “
