Circuit Court Issues Injunction Halting 25% Capacity Limitation

October 15, 2020

I am sorry that I have been inundating you with information lately, but things are changing faster than summer is turning to fall (I am SO not ready for this!).  If you have been following the news (or if you get my newsletter, follow me on Instagram, or like my Facebook page), you know that less than two weeks ago, Governor Evers issued an Executive Order limiting public gatherings to 25% of the total occupancy limits of the building or room. Almost immediately, the Tavern League of Wisconsin filed a lawsuit challenging the order.

This week, a Wisconsin circuit court issued a Temporary Injunction and Restraining Order, which prohibits the state from enforcing the order until further direction from the court. A hearing will be held October 19th to hear arguments from the state to decide if the Restraining Order should remain in place until the lawsuit has been decided.

So, for now, follow the occupancy rules set out by your municipality, and stay tuned for the results of next week’s hearing. (And for winter. Ugh.) If you have any questions about what this means for your business, please reach out!
