Judicial Hot Fire No. 72

After arguments way back in November, the Wisconsin Supreme Court finally issued a ruling this week, deciding that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers overstepped his authority in declaring multiple states of emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic without input from the GOP-controlled state Legislature. In practical terms, the ruling voids the governor’s statewide mask mandate, among other things. In nerdy politics podcast terms, it means we have a written decision full of judicial hot fire to parse and analyze.
