Gov. Charlie Charlie Baker is less than three months away from lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions, but critics who believe the Republican governor overstepped his authority are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare Baker’s actions to date a violation of the Constitution.
The plaintiffs in a unsuccessful lawsuit that sought to overturn many of Gov. Charlie Baker’s executive orders that put business and other gathering restrictions in place during the COVID-19 pandemic are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the case.
The New Civil Liberties Alliance said Monday that it was in the process of filing a petition with the Supreme Court to review the case, which was rejected in December by the state’s top court.
