Blue 'Democrat' Governors Exceeding Their Authority
Another One Bites The Dust - First Wisconsin, Now Oregon Judge Renders Lockdown Orders 'Null And Void' As Flurry Of Lawsuits Against Tyrannical Dem Governors Grow
5-19-20, ANP - The Wisconsin Supreme Court 4-to-3 ruling striking down the "unlawful and invalid" stay-at-home order made it very clear that there is a definite limit to what elected state leaders can and cannot order their citizens to do and in the case of these unconstitutional lockdown orders.
Soon many other state judges will be mimicking the WI Supreme Court which referred to these draconian measures as the very definition of "tyranny." Apparently that ruling is causing a ripple effect across the country. In Oregon, Judge Shirtcliff rendered multiple executive orders by the Governor Kate Brown to be "null and void," after multiple churches sued the Governor.
The stated purpose for the lockdowns is hoping to quell the spread of the Covid virus; it has been challenged in court in several states. The decision in Wisconsin marked the first such lawsuit to succeed in a larger political debate over social distancing that has grown increasingly partisan - Democrats want to continue the lockdown while Republicans do not.
The court ruled that while Wis Democrat Gov Tony Evers, does possess emergency powers as governor, the stay-at-home directive was effectively imposed by Ms Palm, Dept of Health, whose discretion as a political appointee is more limited. The court said:
“We further conclude that Palm’s order confining all people to their homes, forbidding travel and closing businesses exceeded the statutory authority ... upon which Palm claims to rely.”
