Full Version: NY Releases Doomsday Manual for Possible Apocalyptic Event

It seems like something out of a Hollywood movie such as “I am Legend” or “2012.”

How should judges, lawyers, and public health officials respond to a chemical weapon attack? What happens if a mass terrorist attack forces a quarantine, large-scale evacuations, or the slaughter of private animals? Those are the questions that a new doomsday manual put out by the New York state court system and the state bar association hopes to answer.

The manual’s title, “New York State Public Health Legal Manual,” may be boring but the subject matter is not. The book doesn’t mandate new law but encourages officials to think through the application of current rules and regulations when it comes to apocalyptic situations.

The most startling legal realities are handled with lawyerly understatement. It notes that the government has broad power to declare a state of emergency. “Once having done so,” it continues, “local authorities may establish curfews, quarantine wide areas, close businesses, restrict public assemblies and, under certain circumstances, suspend local ordinances.”

But the guide also presents a sober rendition of what the realities might be in dire times. The suspension of laws, it says, is subject to constitutional rights. But then it adds, “This should not prove to be an obstacle, because federal and state constitutional restraints permit expeditious actions in emergency situations.”
