Oregon Supreme Court puts hold on lower court decision that COVID-19 stay-at-home order was ‘null and void’

May 19, 2020

  Yesterday it was learned that a county Judge in Oregon ruled that Governor Kate Brown’s stay-at-home order was “null and void” because it had gone beyond 28 days. The authoritarian Governor appealed the decision to the State Supreme Court and today the Court issued a stay on the lower court decision. Here is more: 

In a late Monday ruling, the Oregon Supreme Court stepped in to put a hold on a dramatic decision by an eastern Oregon judge that declared not only Gov. Kate Brown’s restrictions on church gatherings “null and void” but all her “Stay Home Save Lives’’ coronavirus emergency orders.

State Supreme Court Presiding Justice Thomas A. Balmer in a three-paragraph ruling issued at 7:45 pm. granted the state’s emergency motion after reviewing briefs from both sides.

The hold will remain in effect until the high court considers the state’s full petition to dismiss the Baker County Circuit judge’s preliminary injunction.

Balmer gave the plaintiffs until Friday to file any responses and said the court would take the matter under advisement, with no set timetable for a decision.

  Well that did not take long. The stay is in place until the State Supreme Court issues a ruling on the lawsuit but no timetable is set to hear the case so I would bet this is not going to be heard any time soon.

    Those Gov’s sure make it seem like they’re some that were “placed in” rather than voted in legally. They don’t want to lose their heaven on earth Gravy Train, no matter what!

      Once they get there and they feel the power it consumes them and they forget the people put them there.

        Possibly … you give them more “benefit of the doubt” than I 🙂 I’m considering more so all the illegal voting going on last time I wonder if they didn’t pull the Al Franken or Broward Country truck in the ‘fake ballots’! Or Obama’s Hackers.
        No wonder these ego-maniac power crazed politicians ‘who are stealing away people’s rights’ don’t want to be out on the streets without their armed bodyguards 🙂

        You’re right, I was assuming the election was legitimate!
