Lady Gaga’s father, Joe Germanotta, said he’s going to be “out of business” as he explained why he’s joined with other restaurant owners in New York City in a lawsuit over indoor closures due to pandemic.
“Once the weather gets cold, we’re pretty much out of business,” Joe Germanotta, the owner of Joanne Trattoria in Manhattan said when joining the $2 billion suit against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“If they’re not going to give us the indoor dining, we’ve got to go out and get it ourselves and that’s the bottom line,” Germanotta’s attorney James Mermigis explained. “We have to force them to show us the science.”
“Manhattan right now has one of the lowest infection rates in the state,” he added. “It is ridiculous that New York dining indoors in Manhattan is not allowed and we’re going to have to go get it ourselves.”
