Judge Temporarily Blocks Evers’ Illegal Order

Some good news. Let’s hope the ruling matches.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin judge on Wednesday temporarily blocked an order from Gov. Tony Evers’ administration limiting the number of people who can gather in bars, restaurants and other indoor places, a move that comes as the state breaks records for new coronavirus cases, deaths and hospitalizations.


A GOP-controlled legislative committee on Monday met to begin the process of creating the rule, which would then allow the Legislature to strike it down.

Sawyer County Circuit Judge John Yackel, who blocked the order a day after the Tavern League of Wisconsin sued, set a court date for Monday. He said the hearing will give attorneys for the Evers administration a chance to argue why the order should not be put on hold while the lawsuit plays out.

    Kudos to the Tavern League for doing something the GOP refused to do.
    And kudos to the Tavern League for playing hardball and using liberal tactics against the liberals.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Evers seems to be slapped down by the court a lot.

    Maybe he should check his fascism at the door.

  3. Le Roi du Nord says:

    Nowhere near the 60+ times trump has been stopped by the courts (as of April, 2019).

  4. Jason says:

    Percentage wise, Trump is beating Evers.

  5. Le Roi du Nord says:

    Looks like the Tavern League is 0 for 1.
