The Wisconsin Supreme Court voted 4-3 in favor of overturning Gov. Tony Ever’s stay-at-home order. Chief Justice Patience Roggensack called the order a “controlling, subjective judgement.” Evers then accused the high court and Republican-controled legislature for causing “chaos.” According to Business Insider, as the order was lifted, people began crowding places like bars.
