Judge: Racine must halt COVID restrictions

From The Journal

RACINE — A Racine County Circuit Court judge on Friday afternoon issued a temporary halt to the City of Racine’s COVID-19 restrictions.
That means the city can no longer enforce its restrictions at this time, per the court order.
Judge Jon Fredrickson issued the temporary injunction order while a civil suit against the city and its Public Health Administrator Dottie-Kay Bowersox by David Yandel, the owner of Harbor Park CrossFit, 3801 Blue River Ave., works its way through the court system.
“The defendants are temporarily enjoined from enforcing the Forward Racine order, and enacting any other orders pursuant to administrator Bowersox’s exercise of general powers to issue general orders of general application under Wisconsin statute 252.03,” Fredrickson said.
Fredrickson denied City Attorney Scott Letteney’s request to stay the order until the city could appeal.
Yandel filed the suit against the city and Bowersox on May 21, alleging that business has dropped by more than 25% since the local Safer at Home Order went into effect on May 13.
Bowersox issued that order after the state’s Safer at Home Order was nixed by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Aww, Mayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason isn't the dictator that he thought he was. Remember this for future crises: Butterball's first instinct is not to carefully analyze the problem; rather, his first thought is to grab more power. What a swine!
