The Wisconsin Supreme Court ordered that Governor Tony Evers’s stay-at-home emergency order be struck down in a ruling on Wednesday, placing the state on a path back to normalcy. The ruling is the first of its kind, in which a state supreme court eliminates a governor’s coronavirus emergency order.
Local and municipal governments will still be able to impose a variety of restrictions. The ruling was decided 4-3, with one conservative judge joining two liberals to dissent from Chief Justice Patience Roggensack and Justices Rebecca Bradley, Daniel Kelly and Annette Ziegler.
Establishments previously mandating to stay closed such as bars, restaurants and concert halls will be authorized to reopen after the striking down of the emergency order. Governor Evers had already started to phase out rolling coronavirus restrictions, and the elimination of the order ensures that he’ll have to work with the Republican-controlled legislature to pass moderated forms of health regulations on social distancing and public safety.
The Justices who authorized the ruling explained their legal view that Emergency Order 28 as unenforceable in accordance with Wisconsin law.

The majority justices raised a concern that Evers’ emergency order could create a precedent for “an unelected official to create law applicable to all people during the course of COVID-19 and subject people to imprisonment when they disobeyed her order.”
The court case could bear significance for possible legal challenges to other statewide stay-at-home orders being litigated over in state supreme court systems.
Joe Biden Injured While Playing With Dog, Expected to See Orthopedist
Biden appears to have suffered a minor injury.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reportedly suffered an injury while playing with a dog at his Delaware home on Sunday morning. He’s expected to receive treatment from an orthopedist this afternoon.

Pool reporters were told Sunday that the injury wasn’t serious and that Biden is only being examined out of an abundance of caution. There hasn’t been an update since the pool announcement of the incident.
Biden rarely campaigned during the presidential election, instead opting to remain at his Delaware home and proclaim “lids” as early as 9:10 AM. He’d conceivably have no choice but to assume a more demanding schedule if he’s ultimately inaugurated as President.
If Biden is ultimately elected in December by the electoral college, he’ll be the oldest president ever to be inaugurated for a first term by far. President Trump currently holds the record for being the oldest to be inaugurated, having taken office when he was 71. Biden turned 78 earlier this month.
