People living in Wisconsin are now free to visit friends and family, and go to restaurants and bars, after the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Gov. Tony Evers overstepped his authority by extending the state's stay-at-home order without consulting lawmakers. CBS 2's Mugo Odigwe reports.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court voted 4-3 in favor of overturning Gov. Tony Ever’s stay-at-home order. Chief Justice Patience Roggensack called the order a “controlling, subjective judgement.” Evers then accused the high court and Republican-controled legislature for causing “chaos.” According to Business Insider, as the order was lifted, people began crowding places like bars. In some places where people went to drink, patrons did not wear masks and ignored social-distancing rules.
Residents of Wisconsin flocked to bars on Wednesday evening after the Wisconsin Supreme Court sided with Republican lawmakers who had argued the state's top public health official exceeded her authority by imposing restrictions on businesses and daily life.
