Ohio attorney, Thomas Renz, on behalf of plaintiffs, has filed a case against the state of Ohio and Governor Mike DeWine. Renz is asking for a jury trial.
(Attorney press release posted here; Attorney plaintiff document filed with court posted here.)
(‘Lawsuit’ article archive here)
This case, in the current climate, should provoke intense interest from the public, and from every lawyer within hailing distance.
Here is the impressive opening salvo in the court filing:
“In recent months, entire states have been imprisoned without due process and with the clear threat to impose such lockdowns again, interstate travel has been severely restricted, privacy rights have been devastated, numerous business takings without compensation, and many regulations being implemented without statutory process requirements under the guise of a health emergency that is roughly as dangerous as a seasonal influenza outbreak. The plaintiffs in this case have all been injured in various capacities by these unconstitutional actions, and without action by the Court, will be left without redress. More terrifying, without action by the Court, the Court will be setting future precedent that will allow states to withhold fundamental Constitutional rights, in violation of US Supreme Court precedent, circumventing the various levels of scrutiny applied to such rights, and justify such actions under public health emergency orders without subjecting those orders to any real review—just trust the bureaucrats because they are the experts.”
Here is the most important point: “We humbly ask the Court in this case to…Recognize that the political process and operative orders are invalid if based on false or misleading information… and recognize the criticality that all future emergency orders be based and maintained on clear, honest facts—particularly when such orders are infringing on Constitutional rights.”
In other words, a declared State of Emergency cannot stand on the mere basis of arbitrary edict.
Facts matter. Actual science matters. Reasons why an Emergency is declared matter.
People can’t be locked down and restrained from earning a living and having contact with other humans simply because a state authority decides to issue such orders.
If this case goes to trial, the door will open to the presentation of fact and science.
Attorney Renz, for the plaintiffs, is well aware of this, and his filing is studded with bold and accurate claims of fact:
“According to recent data from the Ohio COVID-19 Dashboard, we can see that the ‘spike’ in cases is actually just a spike in testing. The State went from a few thousand tests per day to 25,000 tests plus per day. The positivity rate for COVID-19 has remained fairly steady but there have been more tests.”
“When the Emergency was declared we heard a daily drumbeat about the danger and deaths related to COVID-19. Now that the case fatality rate has been shown to be roughly the same as the yearly flu…those [death] numbers are simply not scary to the public. As a result, the State sees no impact from talking about fatalities and has instead begun testing more so they could tell us there are more cases.”
“The PCR tests are generally viewed as the means of determining if a patient has COVID-19. The problem is that the inventor of the PCR test, who won a Nobel Prize in chemistry for the invention, specifically stated that the test was not well-suited to and never designed to diagnose disease. Much has been made about this in the press and elsewhere but the reason there are issues with PCR testing in relation to COVID is that PCR testing cannot detect how much of a virus exists in a person. Exposure of the existence of incomplete traces of a virus do not mean a person is infected with a disease [,] which is part of the reason the PCR tests have an elevated rate of false positives.”
“…there is not even a true standard for testing…Instead we have numerous tests from numerous vendors that may or may not have a similar standard for what it means to ‘have’ COVID-19. The CDC, governor, and ODH [Ohio Department of Health] know this so they have allowed for the diagnosis of cases based on as meaningless criteria as a cough in a community in which COVID supposedly exists.”
Plow through this quote and then receive the translation below: “Another document also came to light that is critical in demonstrating the egregiously misleading nature of the public COVID-19 data. On the final paragraph of page 39 of a document published by the FDA regarding instructions for a COVID-19 test is the following quote: ‘Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA (N gene; GenBank accession: MN908947.2) of known titer (RNA copies/μL) spiked into a diluent consisting of a suspension of human A549 cells and viral transport medium (VTM) to mimic clinical specimen’.”
“In plain English this means that there are no available pure 2019-nCOVvirus isolates to test against so instead an educated best guess is being used. The question this leads us to is how accurate can a test be for a virus that has not been defined…? If our freedoms are to be abridged under an emergency declaration related to a disease, should it not be a requirement that the disease at least be defined?”
As you can see, this case is being argued not only on Constitutional grounds, but on major and deep issues of science. The plaintiffs are not accepting “the Word from the experts.”
There is no reason why they, or anyone, should surrender and accept.
In Ohio, a bright light is shining in the darkness.

This is very good news if somewhat belated. Very important that they get a jury trial as we all know that the judiciary has the same objectivity as the Cartoon News Network and the NY Times.
I have a strange feeling that the judges and the jury will be bought by the gill bates (rockefeller clan) money. The court proceedings should be open and available for everyone. But my gut feeling is they will try to do this behind the closed door. I have absolutely zero faith in judges and juries.
Good website, and it is right on the money. The people can’t win through the courts. We need to become ungovernable to succeed:
my guess this ‘suit’ is all staged to set precedence protecting states, cities etc from liability–the courts are rigged
yes, with the vile ones, the only way to win is not to play
I’ve been saying this for over a decade now. People seem to believe in “political solutions”, “justice system” etc. In reality it’s only playing into their (parasites’) hands. I’ve seen it a lot of times – someone takes them to court, presents a perfectly logical arguments, slam dunk. The proceedings are always behind closed doors so public can’t see what’s going on, everyone has to sign some form of NDA to keep their mouths shut, and they throw the person suing under the bus. Then they go around claiming “it’s been proven in the court of law that vaccines are super-safe” or “it’s been proven that Monsanto’s roundup is perfectly safe for humans” etc, etc.
US Courts have almost totally rolled over in the face of the Covid terror attack; two losses in US Supreme re restrictions on places of worship; 5-4 – the deep state’s bought and paid for guy – Roberts – being the deciding vote.
Ohio seems a remarkable exception. Here is a link to an Ohio law group that has also brought and won a number of cases – somewhat restricted purview – gyms, daycare center:
I note that Kennedy’s group Childrens Health Defense in CA is suing U of CA on mandatory flu vaccine – all staff students and faculty (.5 million people; Nov 1 deadline)– and! (like this case discussed here) – they are doing so principally on science/factual grounds not civil rights. Both will be very important to watch.
I hope and pray Kennedy’s suit wins. If it doesn’t, it will be affirmation of a crooked, money influenced system. Oh. That’s right. It’s California! 🙂
FINALLY is all I can say. I hope every state that did this gets similarly sued.
Yeah!!! Cannot wait! Wonder if these plaintiffs and their lawyer need some more money — I will look into that and update what I can find. Fingers crossed and praying.
AK in VT
thanks in advance for doing some of the heavy lifting. Let us know on what additional $ they may need. Thanks. from ticked off neuropsychologist. dr. rw
Yes, we must stand up for our rights!!!???????????????????????? Please keep us posted. We send positive energy to all who are taking on this very important situation re constitional rights
Please let this happen in California and every other state that has suffered under draconian lock downs of tyrannical governors!
Agreed 100%, MOJO. This ripoff taxation state needs to stand trial for the same crimes. Including our so called governor for putting his tail between his legs, bending over and doing what he’s told with no regard to Civil Rights, Constitutional Rights and Freedom!
Just need to copy-paste the arguments and send it in every state as model…
The problem with suing a state in terms of financial penalties is that win or lose, the taxpayer loses. But a win would shut down any more lockdowns (significantly a prison term as the governors have become the wardens of their states), and the trial process itself would be quite educational for the public. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the governors could be sued personally for their EOs? Or better yet indicted for either manslaughter of second degree murder. I would love to see Andrew Cuomo sipping Thunderbird on the Bowery, or better yet, in a MAX security prison for his crimes.
Sue the government for forcing this on the American people. Sue medical cartel/industry for going along with it. ” Doing what upper level told us to do” should be thrown out as an excuse for their actions. Sue the medical industry for the trillions they have stolen from Americans over all of this. Trial and prison time for their crimes against humanity. And served in the same prisons as hardened criminals because, murder is murder. Sue them for causing deaths by unnecessary use of ventilators for the sake of $40,000.00 (Calif., of course). Because as we all know: Money is all that matters to them. As AMERICAN citizens and just plain humans, if WE THE PEOPLE did these crimes, WE THE PEOPLE would be imprisoned by the tyrants of government and the monetarily wealthy. You know them? THEY make laws that THEY don’t have to adhere to!
And yet its the people who keep voting and worshipping there leaders.
Like geogre Carlin said…”you wanna know what really sucks the public.
People if aware enough need to stop playing the game.
If no one voted it would send a message to the system to “fuck OFF”
yes hayden, stop playing their rigged wretched game
If there was justice in NY, squatters wouldn’t have rights.
“If this case goes to trial, the door will open to the presentation of fact and science.”
Jon – “If” scares me. Is there any reason it would not go to trial?
Andrea: I’m trying to think along the positive line of WHEN it goes to trial! 🙂
It is a huge IF. And even if it goes to trial there is a great chance it will be closed to public and everyone present will be NDAed to keep their mouth shut. Courts are corrupt to the core, most judges are on Rockefeller/Rotschild/Soros/Gates payroll…
I wouldn’t put to much faith in the judicial system. The only real solutions is stop playing their rigged game. If they “win” (pay the judge and jury) the case it’s just another card for them to play against us. The only way is civil disobedience and we’re running out of time. Give it a few more months and the only way will be armed rebellion. My bet is the rivers will run red very soon. Taking them to court is better than nothing but it’s too little too late.
i’m with ya JJ–
the courts are there to run cover for ‘their agenda’,
taking ‘them’ to court is as good as nothing, even worse, as the courts only render and enforce an outcome to it’s liking.
reclaim your estate, end compliance as legal person, there is no valid contract or agreement.
I think this is really great, and I hope they are successful for all our sake. But to be completely honest, I don’t think we have seen the worst of this virus hoax yet. We can’t underestimate the powers-that-shouldn’t-be, who are likely already several steps ahead of us on this one. They know full well that many of us are not buying this crap and that we are not convinced of any real danger. They know that we will not take their vaccine and that we will not go quite as submissively into another lock down. So how do they frighten people into compliance when the jig is already up? They actually kill millions of people around the world. But not with a virus, because viruses do not cause disease (see Stefan Lanka, Dawn Lester & David Parker, Andrew Kaufman, and Amandha Vollmer to name a few), and they can only inflate the numbers so high using fake tests and reclassification of symptoms. Instead, they will use their fancy military technology that they have been installing in cities around the globe while people were all obediently locked in their homes afraid of everything that moved. We have already known the negative health impacts of EMF for decades (see The Invisible Rainbow by Arthur Firstenberg), but with the 5G roll out, the implications are beyond our wildest imaginations. Not only can this cause people to experience severe illness, often with flu-like symptoms, but it can lead to almost immediate death, as it destroys oxygen molecules and causes overheating of water molecules within the body (see research done by David Icke and countless others). All they have to do is crank up the frequency on the smart meters and 5G antennas and they can essentially boil us alive at will. This sounds like a pretty sure fire way (no pun intended) to accomplish some of the main points on their agenda: 1) fulfill their eugenics dream of eliminating massive swathes of the population, 2) frighten everybody into submission, and 3) convince everyone that the vaccine is both necessary and desirable. Getting everyone to take the vaccine allows them to usher in the next phase of their “Great Reset” (see the World Economic Forum), which includes global digital currency, bio-metric IDs, and genetic modifications to create their ideal docile and compliant human population (whatever is left of us). Problem – Reaction – Solution.
Yes, it is bleak. No, I don’t wish for any of this. Yes, I think it is entirely possible. As awful as it may sound, I believe that preparing for the worst while hoping for the best is a sound strategy. Please be aware that it really could get this bad. This is not just about the economy or taking away your freedoms. This is about an entire global control grid that has been in the making for centuries, and only now do they actually possess all the technology necessary to make it a reality.
Obviously this would all make the case irrelevant in the long run, whether it goes to trial or not. Especially because the case’s main argument, that the State is basing their actions on an Emergency that is completely unsupported by the data, will be a moot point. Once they roll out 5G at ultra high frequencies, they will have real data to justify their “emergency” actions.
Although, if this does truly open a doorway for an honest debate on science, perhaps there is still hope. There is plenty of science on the harmful effects of EMF and there is a dearth of evidence supporting the safety of 5G.
I don’t mean to poo poo this case or its intentions. I support them 100%. I just think we need to keep our minds open to the possibility that it may not have the impact we are all hoping for, and in that case, we need to be prepared for a darker reality to unfold.
The want us to ask for this stuff…they want us to even pay for it.
The more the public hates this and talks about hating it, the weaker the implementation and less justifiable.
We have to MAKE them be the Bad Guy…because they want it to be sold as progress, sexy and cool. And already this vaccine has become as sexy and cool as a 50 ft. swastika draped over a syringe.
SPOT ON. WE THE PEOPLE MUST RESIST THIS HIDEOUS NIGHTMARE.
Very dark but you have elucidated the worst of the worst as far as this broadest of agendas goes.
I submit that the UN/WHO/WEF are also orchestrating the various sub-themes of destruction across the U.S., from social division and strategic arson to buying off judges, as this country is the strongest of the possible strongholds against this global anti-humanity “reset.”
Yes I wonder the same thing too. Bill and Melinda Gates smiled in a video where Gates said (paraphrasing) ….Australia and New Zealand were lucky this time but the next time they may not be so lucky…and both smiled and almost laughed. What type of people are they that they’d smile and laugh at that? So I do think they may have another virus to let loose. And I’ve heard that’s ‘the plan’.
BY THE WAY…, HAS ANYONE SEEN THIS NEW DEVELOPMENT ON MAINSTREAM MEDIA??
Wondering the same. Actually wondering if it has made any headlines in Ohio…
I fear that no matter how well the case is presented, a decision will be delayed, such as the major Fluoride trial brought by the FAN (Fluoride Action Network), where a decision has been delayed related to ‘new findings’….
Too bad, because this should provide precedent (no isolation of ‘covid’) to stand up against ‘vaccination’, especially if mandated, either nationwide or locally.
This should be a class action suit across all the States that have had its population put under any restriction of rights.
Heck, it should be international, for all ‘democratic’ countries. But maybe the World Court is just as captured as the US’ court system.
‘Draconian’ restrictions around Covid-19 condemned by HSE doctor.”
A senior Irish doctor bucks the trend by comparing C19 to the flu and condemning the official policies.
Covid-19 is “much less severe” than the average annual flu and current “draconian” restrictions are no longer justified, according to a senior Health Service Executive doctor.
People at low risk from the virus should be exposed to it so they can develop herd immunity and reduce the risk to vulnerable groups, according to Dr Martin Feeley, clinical director of the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group.
“That is what is happening and yet the policy seems to be to prevent it,” he says. “This should have been allowed to happen during the summer months before the annual flu season, to reduce the workload on the health service during winter months.”
Any assessment of Ireland’s strategy to combat the virus should take into account the cost to people’s quality of life, according to the former vascular surgeon, who points out that “you can’t postpone youth”.
“The financial cost can be seen in any walk or drive through cities, towns and villages. Mortgage repayments and other financial setbacks are virtually all suffered by the young worker or business person and not by the over-65, who are guaranteed their pension, as indeed are the salaries of the individuals who decide to inflict these draconian measures,” the 70 year old told The Irish Times.”
May he be the first of many to speak out!
Above all, do no harm:

This doctor says that the best medicine is living properly (nutrition, exercise, etc.), and that covert-19 forced inoculation is a scam.
Also, Deep State Enterprises is employing the ghost of Ellis Medavoy to push the idea that Covert-19 exists and was created in a bioweapons lab: https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/rogue-chinese-virologist-joins-twitter-publishes-evidence-covid-19-created-lab
The Bio-weapons theory is some of the most laughable ones. I know Virus Hedge was one of the scam pushers since the beggining of this hoax. I stopped visiting their site long time ago.
As a resident of Ohio, I am thrilled and proud to see folks standing up to the oppressive tyranny from our supposedly educated electorate.
It Should be quite interesting as Governor Dewine is a former Ohio State Attorney General and will most likely run for a second term as Governor in 2022.
I have emailed notice of this court filing to the Mayor of my hometown and an Ohio State Senator, both Democrats.
I think the more people wake up, the sooner this con job House of Cards will collapse.
* INTERNATIONAL ALERT MESSAGE OF HEALTH PROFESSIONALS TO GOVERNMENTS AND CITIZENS OF THE WORLD :

And this must be checked. Please tell me if you have further information.
* A citizens’ Common Law Assembly on Canada’s west coast has passed a Bylaw that outlaws and nullifies all COVID restrictions, masking, distancing, medical testing and vaccinations. Anyone forcing these measures on the people of Parksville and Qualicum Beach can now face fines and imprisonment in a local Common Law Court.
I still haven’t read this: https://republicofkanata.ca/
This is great news, Jon! While so many things fail to match the propaganda, this is a sign of normal action, defending basic needs and fundamental rights.
True: death rate ten times lower for a new virus that was never isolated, defined, proven.
Mayhem and destruction brought by mandatory masking, isolation and quarantine, experimental treatments killing patients, forced vaccines, funded in advance, close up drama of individuals in the ICU.
Decrease of cases and deaths in Sweden, increase in testing countries, that just by coincidence happen to have either political turmoils – France with the Yellow Vests, Spain with corruption, UK with Brexit – or elections, like the US.
I just hope the trial will move fast in the right direction, towards the unquestionable truth.
Oh, the humanity… HEAD FOR THE HILLS!
It was Pence who had the job of announcing to the country a State of Emergency….an arbitrary decision based on flimsy factoids but carrying the end of our Constitution.
This is the core of the suit.
Was there or was there not sufficient just true cause for the State of Emergency.
Only a few like Jon and Dr. Vernon Coleman kept cool heads when Pence made that momentous declaration.
Very informative interview with the great G. Edward Griffin.
As he says in this interview, the agenda that is playing out right before our very eyes was put in place many decades ago, you could argue many centuries ago.
COVID is nine11 on steroids, brought to us by the same cabal.
The Totalitarian, Fascist, Transhumanist Agenda.
The face mask and a-social distancing are the symbols of this transhumanist (de-humanization) agenda.
The Birth of the Face-less Android (evil Goggle tells us right in our faces what the agenda is), to be controlled via centralized AI.
The Roman saying:
“Give the people bread and games, and they will be content”.
“Give the people bread and games, and you can get away with anything”.
(no matter how diabolical the “games” and poisonous the “bread”).
Distraction, Fear, Divide@Conquer.
You can apply divide and conquer to the political system as well. Both sides are the same, but they pretend to be different to divide the people. One side is Christian, the other not. One side is against abortion, the other is not, etc… I don’t know why Americans can’t grasp this simple concept. Voting is a fool’s paradise.
It’s all theater, smoke&mirrors.
It makes not one iota of difference who’s got that presidency job.
Whether it’s Trump, Biden or Santa Claus.
Know thy enemy.
We need this in all 50 states.
I suppose DC could try it too.
Your best written article yet
People’s Mándate is in order and not Gates, Fauci, and indoctrinated, brainwashed médic personnel.
Perfect, all things considered in terms of direct action. I would add that the fastest way to lead to a genuine awakening – meaning, inclusive of those blind-sighted by hypocritical prejudices – would be to completely dismantle Facebook so as to cancel out what has become an utterly delusional comfort-zone; a cyber-style fireplace for the mentally unhinged.
FB users would fall into unfathomable despair; consequently, they would be forced to confront, without the artificial safe haven, the realities of what they themselves (the majority of users) have helped create.
Thanks Jon for the Ohio suit write-up. Have you written anything on the NYT article(s), there have been several, since May, RE:
Positive Covid tests should be 90% negative…OAN did broadcasts on this, why is this not a MAJOR story all across the world? We in Buckeye are fed up with Emperor DeWine, and the BIG10 no FB situation is BS.
Here is Liz Wheeler’s comments on this story from OAN, Trump’s real favorite news source:
An email I received from a well researched article
Why a COVID-19 Vaccine Likely Won’t Happen Anytime Soon
it is weird, i tried to get on the Ohio health department website to look at the dashboard but the whole website is down. I cant access any of it. And the new director was named by Dewine and she declined to take the position.
Is justice found in completely corrupted courts of law?
“Insanity is inflexibly doing the same thing over and over while hoping for different results.”
The important word in this definition is hope as in ‘hoping’. All that has to be done is keep an illusion going that something is being done, and hope is kept alive. Then the rest of the population can remain asleep, giving away its individual power to that, while remaining hoping for the best.
Till humans once again embrace the title of ‘beings’ rather then ‘hopings’ the power that thinks that it is will always own a piece of them.
The judiciary is compromised by biased pimps working under the elites. Don’t expect a verdict favoring fact over fiction. At the most, the lawsuit filed can create more public awareness on the coronahoax provided the media disseminates the information. Little hope of this since the media too shill for the elites. It’s clear from the beginning of the scamdemic that the novel coronavirus is an invention. The primary isolate of the nCoV does not exist nor has its genetic code been sequenced nor has it been photographed using electron microscopy nor does the disease have one unique symptom of its own. Besides, the RT-PCR test is bogus as it is qualitative by nature and it fails even on this count because the genetic sequence of the SARSCoV-2 RNA pathogen (novel coronavirus) is a phantom, a figment of imagination, a lie. The Globalists are backtracking as seen in their settling for Cold War instead of World War, while increasingly their puppets like Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci keep toning down their former bold talk of mandatory vaccination and keep further pushing back the date of the vax rollout and meekly admit that compulsory vaccination is not on the cards. Other Globalist puppets like World Economic Forum and The Economist too are advocating peace instead of military conflict, resumption of businesses and reopening of educational institutions. ????
i can’t imagine a case being won on scientific grounds
i would love to be wrong though
Have just come across Pam Popper’s work.
She is involved with the lawsuit.
See “https://makeamericansfreeagain.com/” for details.
As an Ohio resident and citizen, I am elated and I have emailed Rentz law to add my support and any assistance that I can provide. Thank you for Sharing.
On a side note, notice that the Ohio Athletics Association is allowing football beginning October 24/25th. The players are being required to take regular ANTIGEN TESTS…. The ANTIGEN TEST is a basic flu antigen test which is merely the first of a three step testing protocol for the PCR test. More ambiguous, misleading and insane procedures that indicate the madness and predictable confusion that’s being forced on citizens. I haven’t checked, but I suspect that the NFL is also using the FLU ANTIGEN TEST and avoiding the high percentage of false positives that come from the rt-PCR test itself. This means some that high level corporations like the NFL, College Athletics, NBA, the National Baseball Association, etc., are aware of the technical fallacies in the testing and the pandemic. After all, if these corporations were on board and completely concerned with this pandemic, wouldn’t they insist on taking the complete testing protocol instead of avoiding a highly potential “Positive” that may come from the full procedure?
Interesting. But their participation in the hoax is still unforgivable.
I wish the plaintiffs well.
More on the development of that PCR test
