Wird der Oberste Gerichtshof von Texas dem Obersten Gerichtshof von Wisconsin folgen?

In der vergangenen Woche hat der Oberste Gerichtshof von Wisconsin als erstes der höchsten einzelstaatlichen Gerichte in Amerika einen Großteil der Coronavirus-Bekämpfung einer Landesregierung für nichtig erklärt.

Oberster Gerichtshof von Wisconsin kommt zur Rettung: Richter annullieren einen Großteil der Coronavirus-Kampagne des Gouverneurs

Es bleibt zu hoffen, dass in ganz Amerika gerichtliche und gesetzgeberische Maßnahmen ergriffen werden, um deutlich zu machen, dass Regierungen – ob auf bundesstaatlicher, lokaler oder nationaler Ebene – nicht erneut eine „Bedrohung der öffentlichen Gesundheit“ oder einen anderen „Notstand“ dazu benutzen können, um drakonische Maßnahmen durchzusetzen.

Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down state’s stay-at-home order

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has overturned the state’s stay-at-home order, ruling it „unlawful“ and „unenforceable“ in a high-profile win for the state’s Republican-led Legislature.

In a 4-3 decision Wednesday, the court ruled that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers‘ administration overstepped its authority when the state Department of Health Services extended the order to May 26.

Rolling protest of F-35s coming to Madison ‚amplifies voices‘ around State Capitol

It was the latest protest organized by the Safe Skies Clean Water Coalition, a grassroots organization opposed to bedding down the next-generation fighters at Truax Field at the Dane County Regional Airport. But this was the first since the U.S. Air Force announced Wednesday it will send the jets to the Wisconsin Air National Guard’s 115th Fighter Wing in 2023, which proponents say will create new jobs and benefit the local economy.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Sides With GOP Over Absentee Voting Guidance

(31.03.2020)

The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Republican Party of Wisconsin on Tuesday in a case related to Wisconsin’s upcoming election.

The party brought the case against Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell last week.

McDonell issued guidance last week that any Dane County voter confined by the COVID-19 pandemic could mark themselves as „indefinitely confined“ on their absentee ballot application. Doing so would allow them to bypass the state’s voter ID requirement in their application.
