Michigan Supreme Court Won’t Delay Effect Of Pandemic Ruling

From the Associated Press — The Michigan Supreme Court has rejected Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s request to delay by 28 days the effect of its decision striking down a law she had used to keep intact sweeping orders designed to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Justices voted 6-1 Monday against halting the precedential effect of its opinion until October 30. They also reaffirmed their initial 4-3
ruling that declared a 1945 emergency powers law unconstitutional – this time in a lawsuit brought by the Republican-led Legislature. Whitmer, a Democrat, has reinstituted mask requirements and other restrictions through orders issued by the state health department.
