Skip to comments.Democratic governors hit with flurry of legal challenges to coronavirus lockdowns

The raging public debate over statewide coronavirus lockdowns is running parallel to a series of legal battles in state capitals - and the lockdown skeptics got a big boost this week.
The decision by Wisconsins Supreme Court on Wednesday to toss Gov. Tony Evers statewide shelter-in-place order set off a scramble in cities across the state to impose their own local restrictions. Elsewhere, bars and restaurants shut down by the order declared themselves open for business.
And legal challenges are continuing to pile-up across the country - even as governors who extend their states shelter-in-place orders begin peeling back some restrictions. The plaintiffs are business owners, aggrieved private citizens, pastors and in some cases, state legislators and legislatures.
The targets? Almost always Democratic governors or their top health appointees.
Already, more than a dozen states across the country have faced lawsuits over their lockdown mandates - although its not clear whether any will be as successful as the litigation filed by Wisconsins Republican-led Legislature.
In Michigan, Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmers administration on Friday defended her unilateral extension of the states emergency declaration and its stay-at-home order against a lawsuit brought, as in Wisconsin, by the GOP-controlled Legislature after it voted to deny her an extension last month.

“Natzi Germany”. No, it’s “Nazi Germany” As much as I agree with the sentiment, always make sure at least that the spelling is right and that there aren’t blatant errors in grammar. Otherwise it just creates memes helping the other side.
I don’t want any “new normal” - as if the old is going away, FOR GOOD.
That’s why they need to stop saying such things.
If you think You can create super dooper memes, got to it!
That doesn’t change the fact that our side passing around a meme like this harms us.
“I have a deram!”
That kind of thing.

The continued lockdowns are unconstitutional.
More protests in Blue states... And more lawsuits, too.
