Rick Esenberg on Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision on ‘Safer at Home’
The Wisconsin Supreme Court issued a decision in Legislature v. Palm that strikes down the extension of the ‘Safer at Home’ order that locked down the state of Wisconsin in response to the coronavirus. WILL President and General Counsel Rick Esenberg issued the following statement:
“The Court’s decision ensures that Wisconsin’s response to COVID-19 must involve both the executive and the legislative branch. Wisconsin will be better for it. The grave nature of the pandemic cannot be used to subvert our very form of government.”
The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty filed an amicus brief in support of the Wisconsin Legislature’s original action challenging the extension of the ‘Safer at Home’ order. The amicus was filed on behalf a group of Wisconsin small business owners and entrepreneurs.
