Judge Hears Lawsuit on Mask Order

St. Croix County Judge Michael Waterman is hearing the lawsuit against Governor Tony’s Evers mask mandate brought by the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) on behalf of three Wisconsin residents. WILL argues that because a governor’s public health emergency declaration “shall not exceed 60 days” unless it’s extended by the Legislature, Evers’ second and third public health declarations were invalid, and the court should strike them down. At Monday’s hearing, the judge questioned why the legislature does not simply revoke the emergency order, which it has the power to do. Judge Waterman promised to issue a written order soon.
