The Armed Forces Chamber is proud to announce that it is taking steps to help all American small businesses who were forced to be shut down amid the coronavirus outbreak. Daniel Scully, age 69, is the first Nevadan who succumbed to the coronavirus on March 15, 2020. Two days later, on March 17, 2020, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak ordered all non-essential businesses to be shut down for a minimum of 30 days. The Armed Forces Chamber is credited with being the first Chamber of Commerce in America that is working to identify small businesses and to connect them with go-to powerhouse law firm, the Eglet Adams Law Office with the assistance of real estate attorney and philanthropist, Peter Palivos. Bob Maxwell from Voice of the Vet, a mass communications venue for, by, and about Veterans and their families is helping to promote awareness to small business owners nationwide.
On March 23, 2020, Eglet Adams filed a class-action lawsuit that accuses the Chinese government of engaging “in a campaign of misinformation and lies” to cover up the severity of the coronavirus outbreak. The federal lawsuit was filed in Las Vegas by the firm Eglet Adams on behalf of four Nevada businesses and one Illinois business. Named as defendants in the case are the People’s Republic of China, the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, the Ministry of Emergency Management of the People’s Republic of China, the Ministry of Civil Affairs of the People’s Republic of China, the People’s Government of Hubei Province and the People’s Government of the City of Wuhan, China. The lawsuit alleges negligence, public nuisance and “strict liability for conducting ultrahazardous activity. Attorney Robert Eglet said, "China has trillions (of dollars) in assets here in the United States, so this judgment’s collectible, though the litigation could take several years. The doctrine of sovereign immunity, which protects nations from civil action, would not apply."
“I urge all small US businesses to join this class action lawsuit against the Chinese government, which is responsible for causing and spreading this catastrophic coronavirus pandemic,” commented real estate attorney and philanthropist, Peter Palivos.

"We are proud to lead the charge for all of America's small businesses and especially those that are owned and operated by Armed Forces members," commented Commander of the Armed Forces Chamber, Andre' Haynes. "In Nevada, there are over a quarter million small businesses, which account for more than 90% of businesses throughout the state and employ more than 40% of the private workforce. Small businesses deserve compensation because they were forced to be shut down amid the coronavirus outbreak which caused them to incur losses, layoffs and even shuttered operations resulting in hundreds of millions in losses."
