On May 5, 2020, the Wisconsin Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Wisconsin Legislature v. Andrea Palm. Case #2020AP765-OA
The justices heard arguments related to the following questions:
- Whether the Department of Health Services (the Department) violated Wis. Stat. § 227.24, governing emergency rules, by issuing Emergency Order No. 28 without complying with § 227.24’s procedures?
- Even if the Department did not violate § 227.24, whether Emergency Order No. 28 exceeds the Department’s authority by closing all “nonessential” businesses, ordering all Wisconsin persons to stay at home, and forbidding all “nonessential” travel?
