Kentucky Supreme Court Halts Suit Trying to Block Beshear’s COVID Actions

Kentucky’s high court on Friday put a temporary stop to efforts by a top Republican to rein in the Democratic governor’s ability to control the coronavirus outbreak with restrictions on public behavior.

The state Supreme Court stepped into the dispute by halting any lower court orders blocking Gov. Andy Beshear’s executive actions pending its own review. In doing so, the justices preempted a circuit judge who appeared ready to sign an order suspending all of the governor’s COVID-19 orders.

The Supreme Court’s action means all current virus-related restrictions remain in place.
