11. Update: the State of MN is asking the court to pick up the pace and increase sanctions

re: Havens Garden in Lynn Minnesota.

This is the court papers she was served with today (Dec 30), from Action4Liberty.

To me, it looks like in essence the state of Minnesota, by Jan Malcolm, Commissioner of Health, and signed by the Attorney General, is asking the Ramsey County District Court to pick up the pace and add more sanctions in that $250/day fine is not sufficient in that Havens Garden so far collected enough from well-wishers to pay that for a long time and therefore remain open --


She remains defiant and remains open. She has so far collected nearly $40,000 in a crowd-funding campaign, obviously enough to pay the $250/day fine for months.



“The Constitution,” Justice John Marshall Harlan wrote for a 7-2 majority, “does not import an absolute right in each person to be, at all times and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint.” Instead, “a community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic.” Its members “may at times, under the pressure of great dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand.” States also have the power, beyond criminal law enforcement, to make quarantine and isolation effective. If presented with widespread noncompliance, governors may call National Guard units to put their orders into force, to safeguard state property and infrastructure, and to maintain the peace. In some states, individuals who violate emergency orders can be detained without charge and held in isolation..."
- Jacobson v. Massachusetts, Supreme Court, 1905
