      The Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down on Wednesday the decision by Governor Tony Evers to extend a stay-at-home order. The 4-3 decision challenges the governor’s ability “to rely on emergency powers indefinitely,” and leaves residents in the state with only a patchwork of local and county-level orders to guide and protect them. In this Briefing, our panel discusses the decision and the precedent it sets, and where we could go from here. Recorded May 18, 2020.
