Appeal Seeks Supreme Court Review to End Walz’s ‘Emergency’ Powers
| Press Conference Announcing Appeal |
Free Minnesota, a coalition of citizens and small businesses filed a petition for Quo Warranto lawsuit in May, alleging that the governor was beyond the executive authority granted him by the state constitution and has been exercising purely legislative power by issuing his numerous decrees in response to the Covid-19 virus. The lawsuit was joined by the New House Republican Caucus and members of the State Senate. Judge Gilligan agreed that the Quo Warranto petition was an appropriate vehicle to challenge the governor’s assumed powers, but did not agree to end them.
Today, the Free Minnesota Coalition, through attorney Erick Kaardal of Mohrmon, Kaardal & Erickson, PA, filed legal documents in an appeal, requesting expedited review by the Minnesota Supreme Court because of the urgent nature of the case. Not only businesses, but civil rights and the constitutional structure of government are under assault.
