TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa attorneys Clark Brewster and Paul Demuro say they filed a lawsuit against President Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa Saturday.
Tuesday evening, officials say the request for an expedited hearing is denied.
They say they want the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines to be enforced at the event.
According to documents, they are arguing that since Oklahoma entered phase 3 of reopening on June 1, the number of cases has increased fast in Tulsa and the state.
They say all credible, qualified medical experts, including the CDC, agree that this type of mass-gathering indoor event creates the greatest possible risk of community-wide viral transmission.
