Supreme Court in Wisconsin overturns state's order to stay at home

The directive for people to stay at home during the Covid-19 pandemic was overturned by the Wisconsin Supreme Court with 4-3 votes. The court called the Emergency Order 28 a "vast seizure of power" in the official ruling, while supreme court judge Rebecca Dallet, who voted against the ruling stated that the "decision will undoubtedly go down as one of the most blatant examples of judicial activism in this court's history" as the governor Tony Evers is now forced to find a compromise together with the Republican Party.
