Sawyer County Circuit Court Judge temporarily halts Emergency Order #3

Sawyer County Circuit Court Judge John Yackel issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting enforcement of Governor Tony Evers Emergency Order #3 in a lawsuit brought by the Tavern League of Wisconsin against Secretary-designee Andrea Palm and the Department of Health Services.

Judge Yackel ordered that the defendants (Sec. Palm, DHS and the St. Croix County Public Health Officer) appear before the court at 9:00 AM on Monday, October 19th to present their arguments why the temporary injunction should not remain in place.

Governor Evers released the following statement on Facebook regarding the order:

Today there was a dangerous decision to temporarily put a hold on our order limiting mass gatherings. We’ll be challenging that decision, but here’s the bottom line: Wisconsinites, stay home.

We are at a critical point in the battle against this virus and just because some folks out there want to see full bars and full hospitals doesn’t mean we have to listen. If we want to get back to enjoying our favorite bars and restaurants and events, then we need to stay home.

Limit your outings to essential needs and always wear a face covering when you are out and about. Even the White House agrees– in this week’s Wisconsin report, they said: “Lack of compliance with these measures will lead to preventable deaths.”

We can and will get through these hard times if we band together, look out for our neighbors, and put science and public health before politics. That’s what I am going to do, and I hope you’ll join me.
