In a 4-3 decision, the Wisconsin supreme court today stuck down the ‘safe at home’ order issued by Governor Tony Evers. This decision was written by 4 conservative justices: Chief Justice Patience Roggensack, Rebecca Bradley, Daniel Kelly & Annette Ziegler. The majority opinion says the governor’s order to stay home should have been issued a rule instead of an order. No one in the legislature has submitted a proposed rule, leaving the ship of state rudderless.
