County Judge Rules That Oregon Governor Kate Brown's Covid Restrictions are Unconstitutional

She had no legislative authority for these diktats.

More and more, the left is straight-up endorsing tyranny.

For the public safety and health, you understand!

A county judge has declared Oregon Gov. Kate Brown's coronavirus restrictions "null and void" because she didn't have her emergency orders approved by the Legislature following 28 days.

Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff made the ruling Monday in a lawsuit brought by churches who had sued saying the social-distancing directives were unconstitutional.

The suit had also argued that emergency powers only last for a month and after that Brown would have needed legislative approval. The judge agreed.


Brown said she would immediately appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court to try to keep the emergency orders in effect.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court invalidated the liberal Democrat governor's illegal covid decrees last week.

On May 13, 2020, the Wisconsin Supreme Court issued its decision in Wisconsin Legislature v. Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm, et al. and declared the state's Safer at Home Order unlawful, invalid, and unenforceable, creating a rush by local jurisdictions to issue orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19, resulting in uncertainty for businesses as to how to operate.


The Wisconsin Legislature, led by a coalition of Republican lawmakers, argued that Governor Tony Evers, by designating Andrea Palm, the secretary-designee of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WDHS), could not continue to extend stay-at-home orders indefinitely without seeking approval from the state legislature through rulemaking procedures under Wisconsin Statute § 227.24.

Today, the liberal Democrat/fascist governor said he would stop trying to force further lockdowns, because hey, democracy and the consent of the governed can be a real pain in the ass, you know?

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers said Monday that he's given up trying to push through any more statewide restrictions to slow the spread of the coronavirus because he thinks rival Republicans emboldened by a state Supreme Court decision erasing his stay-at-home order would never allow any.

Minutes after his administration scrapped plans for a new emergency rule, Evers told reporters during a teleconference that drafting rules would be a waste of time given the GOP opposition. His stance leaves local health officials on their own as they wrestle with whether and how to maintain social distancing mandates.

"The Republicans made it very clear they don't believe a statewide approach is the right way to go at this point in time," Evers said. "It doesn't make a lot of sense spending a lot of time doing something we know isn't going to be successful."

Cry more, bitch.
