Pam Popper gave the perfect analogy when she said "lawsuits are like watching paint dry." The legal process is slow and arduous.


As most of you know, on June 10, 2021, our attorney filed for a temporary restraining order (TRO) in the New York State Supreme Court of Nassau County. The TRO, filed on behalf of the plaintiff, her minor children, and all children similarly situated, seeks a preliminary injunction to remove mask mandates in schools by declaring that COVID-19 does not rise to the level of a deadly “epidemic.” The defendants include the Governor, the NYS Department of Health, the Locust Valley Central School District and Board of Education. You can read the complaint HERE.


On June 28th, the Judge assigned to the case denied the TRO, which came as no surprise. On July 13th, our attorney filed a notice of appeal. Since then we have been in a holding pattern as we waited for the State to announce its position on masking in schools for the 2021/2022 school year. Now that the NYS Department of Health has issued a universal mask mandate in schools, our attorney will move forward with the appeal and we expect it will be filed in mid to late September.


Our lawsuit is one of many Make Americans Free Again (MAFA) lawsuits filed across the country. MAFA has been gradually building a national team that can help us regain our freedoms. Any of the legal actions taken by MAFA that result in obtaining the real data will be useful in ALL of the lawsuits we have filed and will file in the future, regardless of state lines.


It is also important to note that while the types of cases vary, they all address the core issue - the false declaration of a health emergency. Further, they all include claims that the real data did not warrant mask mandates, business restrictions and closures, emergency use authorizations for vaccines, mandatory vaccines, health passports and other COVID rules. You can read updates on those lawsuits HERE.

The Make Americans Free Again Plan for "Protecting Our Children"

We are committed to empowering parents to take control of their children’s lives, health, and education.


You most likely have already determined that almost all schools are going to continue to enforce some COVID rules, which include masks, testing, quarantines, social distancing, event restrictions and almost any other actions the CDC, government, and health officials recommend.  Concerned about this?  We can help!

July 1, 2021

On June 10, 2021, NY Stands Up! Attorney Patricia Finn, filed for a temporary restraining order (TRO) in the New York State Supreme Court of Nassau County.  The TRO, filed on behalf of the plaintiff, her minor children and all children similarly situated, seeks a preliminary injunction to remove mask mandates in schools by declaring that COVID-19 does not rise to the level of a deadly “epidemic.” You can read the complaint HERE.


Judge Pineda-Kirwan was assigned to the case and, on June 28th, she denied the TRO. This decision was made regardless of the fact that one of the defendants, (Locust Valley Central School District), did not object to the TRO.


Needless to say, our legal team is well prepared to move forward and an appeal on the decision will be filed.

A Message from Attorney Carl J. Schwartz....


Every time I see a notice that I must either be vaccinated or wear a mask to enter a building when we all know that this entire debacle is generated to enrich a few billionaires makes me angry; angry, in a good way.   It affirms that the work we have been doing to file lawsuits and prove the truth is necessary to secure our rights and freedoms both now and in the future.


Last week our legal team addressed the temporary relief that we requested for the named plaintiffs in our lawsuit which includes young students who are medically compromised by the wearing of masks and had been forced to do so at school despite their medical doctor advising against it.  The temporary relief we seek is not only to be granted to those named in the lawsuit....but also to those "who are similarly situated” meaning all children in New York State.  The reason we lawyers seek such relief is because a court can only grant temporary relief if there is a likelihood of success on the merits of the case when it is eventually decided.  So, it REALLY matters for the outcome of the case to all of us if we can win the temporary relief.  Last week, one of the defendants in the case, the school district, knowing the above and seeing "the writing on the wall" given how well Attorney Patti Finn drafted the lawsuit, did not object to our being granted the temporary relief.  That means we are already winning our case to get rid of these ridiculous masks.


Concurrently, we are working on a lawsuit that prohibits institutions from mandating that we be vaccinated with these emergency and unapproved "vaccines" which are more dangerous to our students and young people than the COVID-19 virus itself.  The law is on our side on this issue but we are going to have to go to court and, again, fight for our rights if we are to enjoy those rights because institutions across the land have chosen to mandate the vaccines despite what the law provides.  


WE NEED YOUR HELP to be able to pay the attorneys who are specialized in this area of the law.   As General Counsel for NY Stands Up! I do not receive any of the funds that we raise to do this legal work - all of my efforts are voluntary.  But, we need to pay our specialist who are doing this work for us at a fraction of the cost of what it would be if they were billing us by the hour.


Best personal regards,


Carl J, Schwartz, Esq.

A Message from Attorney Carl J. Schwartz...

Masks. Do they protect the sick from the healthy or the healthy from the sick? Traditionally, it was always the latter. So, are you, perfectly healthy as you are, tired of being forced to wear a mask? Does this mandate infringe on your freedom? Freedom, to what? from what?


One year ago, if The People were told that they would be expected to wear a mask for the next year, and every half of a year thereafter, without any scientific evidence that the mask even makes any difference at all, they would have revolted.


One year ago, if The People were told that they would never again be able to attend a sporting event, theater, school event, or travel outside of the United States, without agreeing to receive a vaccine that had never been safety tested and approved by the FDA, they would have revolted.


One year ago, if The People were told that their government officials had been compromised by the money of billionaire forces such that The People are not first represented by their own legislators, they would have revolted.


One year ago, if The People were told that the Courts could no longer adjudicate their freedoms because in the midst of “an emergency” the rights and freedoms guaranteed to The People by their Constitutions no longer exists and are thereby null and void, they would have revolted.


One year ago, this lawyer, not a Constitutional Law attorney, could not believe such was the case and therefore started to file lawsuits to regain the rights and freedoms of The People. Much to the consternation of this lawyer it was proven that the Courts are compromised by the “emergency” powers of the government and are thereby largely unwilling and unable to protect the rights and freedoms of The People. This, while the government has been fully unable to prove that an emergency even exists. By its own numbers, it has been proven that whatever COVID-19 is, it is not any more lethal than any other viral enemy we face and is far less deadly to able-bodied people than the risk of drowning, accidental injury, suicide, or death from an addiction, all threats we face and are forced to accept every day.


So, why do we continue to wear masks and allow government and big business to tell us what we are going to do? Because we are law abiding citizens and have given the government every bit of deference despite the fact that they have not made a scientific case for mandating masks. That being said, we are preparing a legal action to restore our freedoms and set aside the mask mandate through the courts of the State of New York and by this communication ask for your financial support so that we can mount the best legal argument possible. Your financial support is appreciated in order to get the lawsuit filed and once it is completed we will be posting it herein for your review.


Thank you for standing up for our freedoms,


Carl J. Schwartz, Jr., Esq.
