A lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the State of Nevada last week by a concerned citizen who feels the Trump Administration failed the country. George E. Hretz acknowledged in the lawsuit that U.S. Supreme Court precedent makes clear that the government is under no obligation to protect citizens. But Hretz is arguing that the court should revisit its past decisions based on the language of the U.S. Constitution.
COVID-19 is responsible for the deaths of 228,000 Americans, according to the lawsuit, which was filed the final week of October. Hretz, who is representing himself in the lawsuit, said that the Trump Administration placed Americans in harms way by dismantling the pandemic response team that was established by former President Barack Obama. The lawsuit also cites journalist Bob Woodward’s book “Rage.” President Trump, according to the book, told Woodward that he was deliberately “playing down” the pandemic to prevent mass panic.
