March 20, 2020
BOCA RATON, Fla. — A federal class-action lawsuit has been filed against the Chinese government “for damages suffered as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.”
The Berman Law Group, based in Boca Raton, filed the lawsuit Thursday in Miami federal court.
According to the complaint, the People’s Republic of China and the city of Wuhan, where the outbreak began, are named as defendants in the lawsuit.
“The PRC and the other defendants knew that COVID-19 was dangerous and capable of causing a pandemic, yet slowly acted, proverbially put their head in the sand and/or covered it up for their own economic self-interest,” attorney Matthew Moore wrote in the lawsuit.
