Oregon Judge Agrees With Public Advocate: THROWS OUT GOVERNOR LOCKDOWN
Public Advocate president Eugene Delgaudio said: "Public Advocate and other top Christian law firms have stated that governors can not abuse Christians and small business and treat them differently than large companies like Walmart, now a judge has thrown out another Governor's overreach, this time in Oregon."
An Oregon judge has declared coronavirus restrictions enacted by Gov. Kate Brown (D) "null and void" because her emergency orders weren't approved by the state legislature after 28 days, according to KJW8.
Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff made the ruling Monday in a lawsuit brought by churches who had sued saying the social-distancing directives were unconstitutional.
The suit had also argued that emergency powers only last for a month and after that Brown would have needed legislative approval. The judge agreed. -KJW8
