Last night we received the news that Judge Heckman’s ruling in our favor is now final.
She refused Newsom’s request to delay the Permanent Injunction against him: “The Governor’s request for stay of enforcement of the judgment is denied.”
You can read the final ruling here. The Judge brushed aside Newsom’s attempt to change her prior decision, noting that he raised “no additional principal controverted issues.”
The ruling calls the case a “critically important one for the Judicial Branch to resolve” given that the State of Emergency “continues in effect, indefinitely.” Assemblyman Gallagher and I released the following joint statement:
“Today, the Court confirmed that Gavin Newsom does not rule California and that we are still a nation of laws. California has not been well-served by one-man rule. A return to representative government will be best for public health and the economy. The Governor must accept this ruling as a fundamental principle of our democracy and govern himself accordingly.”
