The state’s top law enforcement officer says she will allow local police to “exercise their best judgment” about whether to enforce Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-home edict until a lawsuit challenging the governor’s emergency powers is decided in court.
Bottom line, Michigan’s AG knew that the governor’s orders expired on April 30, 2020 at 11:59 pm and, any further actions by Half Whitmer are illegitimate and unlawful.
Multiple media outlets and the Michigan Republican Party have reported that a lawsuit has been filed in the Michigan Court challenging Gov. Witless’ authority to crank out an endless litany of Executive Orders relating to the Wuhan virus.
They have asked for an expedited ruling in this matter.
Two quick points:
First, it was filed in the Michigan Court of Claims. Their track record in this area, Judge Murray’s legal rationale especially, is questionable at best and laughable at worst. Martinko, et al vs. Whitmer is a perfect example of my skepticism.
I DO NOT see them ruling favorably in this case. It will most likely be going to the Michigan Supreme Court.
Second, this is only going to address PA 302 of 1945, it does not address anything else.
We already have an AG shooting off “opinions” on the legality of a rogue governor’s actions. While it is doubtful that they will be upheld, AG Nessel’s actions do throw a monkey wrench into the works of bringing Michigan back.
FYI, I’m speaking to a few people regarding a second front to dealing with PA 302…more to follow.
Another “lost decade” is not out of the realm of possibility if the governor’s actions are not remedied in time.
