Florida Restaurants Seek Relief from Fourth Circuit

A Florida chain of family-owned restaurants is asking the Fourth Circuit to take up its case, giving it another chance to obtain coverage after state efforts aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19 forced them to halt all in-person dining.

The Skillets Restaurants are represented by Tim Burns and Brian Cawley of Burns Bowen Bair LLP. They are joined by Lisa Sarah Brook and Edward Kyle McNew of MichieHamlett PLLC, Adam J. Levitt and Kenneth Abbarno of DiCello Levitt Gutzler LLC, and W. Mark Lanier of The Lanier Law Firm PC.

Mr. Burns recently told Law360 that his clients hope the Fourth Circuit and other courts, “will make short work” of decisions with poor reasoning, that are “linguistically suspect” and aren’t true to principles of policy interpretation.
