From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
The Ten20 lounge, shuttered by the city for violating coronavirus restrictions and publicly shamed by Gov. Ned Lamont, has filed an appeal with the state.
“The appellants believe that their reputation and business have been irreparably harmed and their right to fair opportunity to be heard and due process under the law has been violated,” reads the paperwork Attorney Reine Boyer filed with the state Department of Public Health on Ten20’s behalf. “The appellant is losing money every day that it is closed, especially at the end of the week/during the weekends from Thursday to Sunday when it makes the most revenue due to dinner/appetizer special nights, private events, and brunch on Sundays.”
The lounge was closed by municipal health officials in late October for overcrowding and a lack of masks at what the establishment’s owners characterized as a private Oct. 24 birthday party.
