Wisconsin Supreme Court overturns states stay-at-home order to prevent spread of Covid-19.

  • The high court issued a 4-3 decision, ruling that Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm exceeded her powers by issuing the order.
  • Republicans in state legislature brought the case against the order arguing the order would hurt businesses.
  • The ruling immediately lifts all restrictions on businesses and gatherings imposed by the order but keeps in place the order closing schools until the fall.
