Dear OSCC Members & Colleagues,
We are reluctant to bring this up because while it is certainly monumental, there is a very real possibility it will be short lived and just serve to add to everyone's daily confusion.
This morning, Baker County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Shirtcliff invalidated Governor Kate Brown's "Stay at Home" executive order - EO 20-12.
Although the plaintiffs were a group of churches, Judge Shirtcliff's opinion is more far-reaching than just the right to assemble at a religious gathering.
The judge reasoned that Governor Brown overstepped her authority entirely by issuing an executive order with an open-ended end date. He ruled that Governor Brown legally could only impose a maximum 28-day order.
Therefore, as of this moment, Executive Order 20-12 appears to invalidated entirely.
Governor Brown's office is seeking immediate review of the Circuit Court opinion by the Oregon Supreme Court.
The landscape could all change again in a matter of days, or even hours, as either the Oregon Supreme Court could reverse Judge Shirtcliff's ruling and uphold Executive Order 20-12 or provide guidance on a new Executive Order that would pass legal muster.
We will let you know as this issue evolves.
