Supreme Court Overturns Wisconsin Governor’s Stay-at-Home Order


The Wisconsin Supreme Court has overturned Governor Tony Evers’ stay-at-home order extension. In a 4-3 decision on Wednesday, the court ruled that Evers’ health secretary overstepped the boundaries of her authority when she extended coronavirus restrictions to May 26th. The decision means businesses can now reopen and residents are free to leave their homes. Condemning the court’s decision, Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul says the court has pulled the plug on a plan that’s been saving lives during the coronavirus pandemic. “Wisconsinites’ actions have saved many lives, and we’ve made meaningful progress in the fight against the coronavirus,” he says. “At the legislature’s urging, however, the plan that’s been working has largely been struck down.”

Does this decision set a precedent for the rest of the country?
