Barbershop owner sues Gov. Reeves & Madison mayor

Coronavirus

MADISON, Miss. (WJTV) – Governor Tate Reeves is being sued by a Madison barbershop owner.

Last week, Madison police cited Mike Land for opening his business, despite the governor’s order to keep barbershops, hair salons and nail salons closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Land said he opened his business to give his employees a way to earn money. He’s suing the governor and Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler, saying the order and the action of police violated his constitutional rights.
