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.
New York Partygoers Face Subpoenas, $2K-Per-Day Fines for Refusing to Submit to Mandatory Contact Tracing
This is the Orwellian nightmare.
Nine partygoers are facing subpoenas after refusing to submit to invasive contact tracing measures from authorities that would invade their privacy rights.
The situation stems from a party that was held in Rockland County, New York on June 17, drawing a crowd of roughly 100 people, most of whom were in their 20s. The party was a violation of state edicts issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that were in place at the time banning gatherings of over ten people.
Eight guests at the party ultimately tested positive for coronavirus, which prompted county officials to send contact tracers to harass others who attended the party. The young people were not about to comply with the harassment from the snoopers.
“My staff has been told that a person does not wish to, or have to, speak to my disease investigators,” said Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert, who serves as Rockland County health commissioner, on Wednesday.
“They hang up. They deny being at the party even though we have their names from another party attendee,” she said about the individuals who have been contacted for allegedly being at the party.
County officials issued subpoenas on Wednesday to eight people who they believe attended the problematic party. These people will face $2,000-per-day fines unless they comply and assist the county’s Orwellian surveillance program.
Government officials hope to make an example of these people for refusing to surrender to fear and living their lives.
“I will not allow the health of our county to be compromised because of ignorance, stupidity or obstinance, or anything else,” Ed Day, the Rockland County executive, said at a news conference.
Big League Politics has reported on how government officials have used COVID-19 hysteria to eviscerate privacy rights and normalize Orwellian technology to the public:
AiRISTA Flow, a tech firm based out of Maryland, is marketing bracelets that would beep whenever a person comes within six feet of another individual in the workplace.
“When people come within six feet of each other for a period of time,” the company wrote in a press release about their creepy and invasive device, “the device makes an audible chirp and a record of the contact is made in the AiRISTA Flow software system.”
The technology would also allow employers to track every violation of social distancing edicts committed by their workers. The workers could then be reprimanded, or even fired, based off of the information gathered by the device.
The Redpoint Positioning Corporation is developing similar technology to turn employers into quarantine enforcement brigades. They have announced that they are working on modifying “cutting-edge technology … already used by leading companies worldwide in third-party logistics, auto manufacturing, mine operation” to be used in the enforcement of social distancing edicts. They plan on tagging people and products in the workplace to allow employers to institute Draconian restrictions on the freedom of movement.
“If social distancing parameters, such as a 1- or 2-meter radius, are violated between workers, the tag alarm will alert them to the hazard,” Redpoint wrote in their press release.
“If an infection does occur, historical data from the system will allow for highly accurate contact tracing, as records can show the individuals who were near the infected party,” they added.
Israeli surveillance firm SuperCom is repackaging services that are used on criminals to enforce home confinement on ordinary people in the workplace. They are calling their service “PureCare,” and it is described as a “state-of-the-art solution for quarantine and isolation monitoring to aid government efforts in containing and limiting the reach of infectious diseases.” They claim it is “a non-intrusive patient friendly system that constantly tracks patient location within buildings, vehicles and outside.”
They noted in their press release that they have experienced a sharp increase in “government agencies looking to restrict the spread of COVID-19 among their general population” and anticipate “additional potential industry demand for electronic monitoring services coming from the incarcerated American population.”
SuperCom talks in a cavalier fashion about how their technology will be used to treat ordinary law-abiding citizens like criminals.
