Many restaurants had to close temporarily because of the measures to contain the corona virus – including Eugen Block’s steakhouses. The entrepreneur is now demanding compensation from Hamburg.
Because of the corona pandemic, the steakhouses of the Blockhouse and Jim Block chains also had to close temporarily – also in Hamburg. Therefore, the founder of the restaurants, Eugen Block, is now suing the Senate of the City of Hamburg for damages, he believes the corona measures are excessive. This is what the “Hamburger Abendblatt” reports.
“We have filed a lawsuit against the Hamburg Sars-CoV-2 containment ordinance at the Hamburg Administrative Court,” the newspaper quoted a spokesman for the block group. However, there has not yet been a date for an oral hearing.
Block has been railing against these since the beginning of the Corona measures, he fears serious economic damage to his restaurants. The 79-year-old entrepreneur told “Spiegel” in April: “Then I’ll just die three days earlier, so what?” He also wrote letters to the Robert Koch Institute and raised serious allegations.
