Long Island Strip Club Owner Sues New York Governor Andrew Cuomo And SBA Over Covid-19 Restrictions
Long Island strip club owner Sean McCarthy has owned Blush Gentleman’s Club in Commack since 1997.
McCarthy claims New York State stripped of his constitutional rights. Now he has filed a federal lawsuit against Cuomo and the state of New York. The target of his wrath is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The Long Island strip club owner filed suit against Cuomo over his executive orders shuttering non-essential businesses amid the pandemic.
McCarthy’s attorney, Joe Murray told the New York Post:
The issue first arose when Samaritan’s Purse was setting up its emergency field hospital. The charity’s comptroller noticed that NYS law requires anyone working in the state for more than 14 days to pay income tax.
Mac Properties Tells Tenants Affected By COVID-19, “PAY UP OR GET THE EFF OUT!”
Mac Properties is using heavy-handed tactics in Chicago during the pandemic to ensure renters pay up. The company owned by Antheus Capital also got creative with doing evictions. The company decided to do themselves after the Cook County Sheriff stopped serving them on tenants.
Mac Properties is one of the few landlords still proceeding with evictions. The property management arm of Antheus Capital owns 5,000 units across Chicago.
Mac Properties is beginning to anger tenants by demanding they sign nondisclosure agreements before discussing rent-payment plans. Despite the pandemic, Mac has not granted rent forgiveness. Instead, it has outlined a policy that includes allowing residents to pursue “a path to lease termination” or to move into a cheaper unit.
Court records show the company filed two eviction claims in recent weeks in addition to the nine it sent in March. The April evictions were for tenant bad behavior and the March notices were for nonpayment.
