State Supreme Court Strikes Down Emergency Powers Law
The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday struck down a 1945 law that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has been using to keep the state locked down since April.
Whitmer has repeatedly extended a “state of emergency” for the past several months and pointed to a World War II-era law to do so, most recently lengthening it until October 27. But today, the basis for the ongoing lockdown was ruled unconstitutional.
“The governor had no right to extend the state of emergency over the Legislature’s objection. Our Constitution matters, and this was a big win for our democratic process.”
“Michigan is now unlocked,” Fred Wszolek, spokesman for Unlock Michigan told Breitbart News.
