Supreme Court Will Not Hear Appeal Directed At Governor Baker

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided against hearing an appeal of a decision that found Governor Charlie Baker did not overstep his authority with sweeping orders to control the Coronavirus early in the pandemic.

The nation's highest court announced without comment yesterday that it would not consider the appeal.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in December had rejected a challenge brought on behalf of a group including salon owners, pastors, and the headmaster of a private school.

They accused the governor of exercising "legislative police power" by declaring a state of emergency under the state's civil defense act.
