Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) was recently dealt a massive blow by her State Supreme Court.
Even though she lost a decision earlier this month regarding her lockdown, she had planned on working around it to keep her lockdown in place.
On Monday, the court rules that its October 2 ruling that states she overextended her authority must be enforced immediately.
Whitmer had been hoping to keep her orders in place through the end of the month.
The court ruled overwhelmingly (6-1) that she must immediately end her emergency orders.
Whitmer tried to make the case that the administration needed the extra time to put contingency plans in place, but it fell on deaf ears.
The court, in its ruling, stated, “Executive orders issued under that act are of no continuing legal effect.
“This order is effective upon entry.”
Michigan Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield, a Republican, was ecstatic to get the news that Whitmer can no longer hold the entire state hostage so she can score political points against Trump.
Chatfield stated, “Another big win at the Supreme Court today!”
“The law is the law, and partisan politics can’t change that.
“The people will finally have their voices heard in this process.
“The House is in again tomorrow, and I hope the Governor is ready to cooperate. It’s time to work together!”
