Here’s the formal language of the lawsuit filed by TennesseeStands.org on behalf of ALL citizens of the state of Tennessee-
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITIZENS OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE STANDING ALONGSIDE THE CITIZENS FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT AND CONSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY,
do hereby not only urge, but demand Governor Bill Lee cease and desist from continuing to execute orders with a supposed force of law as these actions are expressly prohibited by our Tennessee Constitution and therefore a direct violation of the Oath of Office signed on January 19, 2019 stating, “I, William Byron Lee, do solemnly swear that as Governor of the State of Tennessee, I will support the Constitution of the State of Tennessee and the Constitution of the United States, and that I will perform with fidelity and faithfully execute the duties of the office of Governor to which I have been elected and which I am about to assume, to the best of my skill and ability.So help me God.”
Additionally, we demand that county mayors, health departments, and county school boards cease and desist from continuing to issue unconstitutional orders and/or regulations based on illegitimate delegated authority and restrain themselves to performing their lawful duties as prescribed by the Tennessee General Assembly per Article VII, Section 1 of the Tennessee Constitution.
We do hereby intend to enforce these demands by any and all necessary legal actions, protest, civil disobedience and all lawful actions afforded to citizens of the State of Tennessee by our Tennessee Constitution and the U.S. Constitution in efforts to preserve the dignity, rights, and liberties of the people of this State.
– Citizens of the State of Tennessee
