Has anyone seen this with our very own legal board of reference member Charles J Cooper?
Breaking news 5/4 - another lawsuit has been filed against Gov. Evers’ Safer at Home order, calling it unconstitutional for singling out religious worship and political gatherings for special restrictions.
Petitioner is Jere Fabick and Larry Chapman, two WI residents, represented by Cooper & Kirk, law firm in DC. Jere Fabick petitioner - “The State has clearly gone too far, needlessly infringing our most basic constitutional liberties - to an extent that is without precedent and that would have been virtually unimaginable in a free society just two months ago.” Charles J. Cooper of Cooper & Kirk - “The fundamental constitutional freedoms to gather together for worship and for political speech and association are not fair weather rights.
The restraints that Wisconsin’s executive officials have placed on the State’s citizens to combat the Covid-19 crisis have needlessly and discriminatorily infringed on these fundamental rights.” Brief excerpt - Petitioners do not question the seriousness of the health crisis, but the order promulgated refutes any contention that these constitutional infringements are the least restrictive means, or sensible means, of combatting the virus.
Even a public health crisis does not give the State’s executive authorities license to impose measures that are arbitrary and irrational... Or that patently violate our most sacred constitutional rights. The State Supreme Court should exercise original jurisdiction and grant a temporary and permanent injunction. (As reported by Maciver)
