State Supreme Court agrees to take up lawsuit over Gov. Evers’ Safer at Home extension

Tony Evers

MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Supreme Court has approved to take up a lawsuit over Gov. Tony Evers’ extension of the Safer at Home order.

The state Legislature filed a lawsuit last month asking the court to block the extension, claiming it went beyond the executive branch’s powers.

A court order from Friday said a hearing will take place Tuesday at 10 a.m. through videoconferencing. Both sides will have 45 minutes for their arguments.
