The swing vote on Wisconsin’s supreme court looks to be leaning away from Governor Evers’ mask mandate and limits on crowds at bars and restaurants.
The governor’s lawyers yesterday argued their case before the state’s highest court. The question, the justices say, is not what state government should do about the coronavirus but rather who has the power to do something. Conservative Justice Brian Haegedorn, who may swing the case, yesterday questioned why the governor hasn’t involved lawmakers in any of his orders. Hagedorn says the law is clear that lawmakers have the power here.
