Judge overturns Oregon Governor's Covid-19 restrictions


Prodded by a group of churches, a county judge has tossed restrictions laid down by Governor Brown, saying that she needed the approval of the Oregon legislature first.
Quote:
Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff made the ruling Monday in a lawsuit brought by churches that had sued saying the social-distancing directives were unconstitutional.
The suit had also argued that emergency powers only last for a month and after that Brown would have needed legislative approval. The judge agreed.
Brown said she would immediately appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court to try to keep the emergency orders in effect.
This is disturbing to me.
