Oregon’s Coronavirus Restrictions declared ’Null and Void’ in Court

Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff made the ruling Monday in a lawsuit brought by churches who said the social-distancing directives were unconstitutional. The judge ruled that Gov. Kate Brown’s coronavirus restrictions were ’null and void’ as in the second argument made by the church emergency powers only last for a month and Brown failed to get the needed legislative approval in time

Surreal when an Oregon judge sides with Christian churches to rule against the governor... but an obvious thing to rule on.

When something is so unconstitutional that even an Oregon judge can't defend it.

A judge in the ninth circuit that read the constitution. What's the world coming to?

As an Oregonian I actually fist-pumped to this lol. Kate Brown is an incompetent hag and only got elected because antifa stronghold and cesspool Portland decides elections for the whole State.

Order remains in force, pending appeal. She should get legislative cover in the meantime and render all this moot.

So on one hand we have Dershowitz saying "the govt can drag you to a clinic and force a needle into your arm to protect yourself and others" and this judge saying "the govt can't force you to protect yourself and others" ...scratching head...
