A California judge on Wednesday issued a preliminary injunction blocking Governor Gavin Newsom’s Covid ‘misinformation’ law.
A new California law, known as Assembly Bill 2098, would allow the Medical Board of California to ‘discipline’ doctors who spread Covid ‘misinformation.’
Of course ‘Covid misinformation’ is anything that doesn’t fall in line with the Democrat-Pharma-Media complex.
A group of doctors filed a lawsuit against Governor Newsom’s administration, arguing the law violates their First Amendment rights.
The injunction blocks the law as the case works its way through the courts.
1/ BREAKING: Judge just granted our request for a preliminary injunction against AB 2098–the gag order on physicians in CA–in our Hoeg v. Newsom lawsuit. This effectively halts the implementation of this terrible law while our case is being tried.

Fox News reported:
A California judge issued a preliminary injunction against a state law that empowers the Medical Board of California to discipline physicians who support opinions about COVID-19 that are not in line with the “consensus,” according to reports.
The law, known as Assembly Bill 2098, was set to take effect on Jan. 1, 2023. Under the law, the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California could discipline physicians who “disseminate” information about COVID that is not in line with the “contemporary scientific consensus.”
But in November, a group of five California physicians filed a lawsuit against California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration, saying the law violates their First Amendment rights and constitutional right to due process.
The preliminary injunction temporarily halts the implementation of the law while the case is tried in court.
