HONOLULU – We’re following that class action lawsuit that 1,200 first responders filed against Honolulu and Maui Counties because they feel a vaccine requirement at work violates their constitutional rights.

The three lawyers representing the plaintiffs filed the complaint on Friday evening. The defendants- the county mayors, the Governor, and others- will be served on Monday. The legal team told KITV4 tonight, since this hit the news, another 800 city workers asked to join the lawsuit.

And they’ve taken what they say are “thousands” of requests from private sector workers and students to open up other class action lawsuits. Michael Green, Kristina Coccaro, and Shawn Luiz – who work at different firms but joined forces for this case -say they are planning to do that.
