A Court in Northern Kentucky issued a restraining order against some of Gov. Beshear’s executive orders shutting down daycare centers and racetracks. Attorney General Daniel Cameron filed suit against Beshear and called his orders arbitrary and a violation of the constitution. Beshear declared a health emergency on March 6 and single-handedly shuttered numerous industries which left nearly half our workforce unemployed. Cameron argued that Beshear’s orders were complex, over-broad, and sometimes conflicted with other orders and Boone County Circuit Court Judge Richard A. Brueggemann agreed. Cameron wasn’t against the Governor taking a leadership role to slow the coronavirus but he said his actions should have been targeted and proportional to the particular threat Kentucky is facing.
