Wisconsin Supreme Court to the Rescue, Justices Void Much of Governor’s Coronavirus Crackdown

by | May 14, 2020


Politicians across America who have been trampling on liberty via a multitude of mandates imposed in the name of countering coronavirus should beware. There may be a court of jurisdiction stomping out your tyrannical efforts soon.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court led the way to restoring respect for limits on government power on Wednesday when it voided much of Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ restrictions on commerce, travel, and other exercises of liberty purportedly imposed to protect people’s health.

”The Wisconsin Supreme Court has struck down Gov. Tony Evers’ order shutting down daily life to limit the spread of coronavirus — marking the first time a statewide order of its kind has been knocked down by a court of last resort,” begins a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article by Molly Beck and Patrick Marley regarding the court’s decision.

Let’s hope that across America judicial and legislative actions are taken to make it clear that governments — state, local, or national — cannot again use a “public health threat” or other “emergency” to impose draconian mandates.
