Judge rules against Gov. Newsom in lawsuit challenging executive order


A State Superior Court judge ruled against Governor Gavin Newsom in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of his executive orders.

Judge Sarah Heckman ruled that Newsom’s executive No. N-67-20 was indeed unconstitutional.

The order required that all California residents registered to vote in the Nov. elections receive vote-by-mail ballots. The order also required one voting place per 10,000 residents be available from Oct 31 to Nov 2 for at least 8 hours.

Today, a California Superior Court ruled in favor of me and fellow legislator James Gallagher in our lawsuit challenging Gavin Newsom’s abuse of power.

The Judge ruled Newsom violated the Constitution by issuing Executive Order N-67-20. More importantly, she found good cause for an injunction restraining the Governor from issuing any more unconstitutional orders. You can read the ruling here.

The Court rejected Newsom’s extraordinary claim that a State of Emergency “centralizes the state’s powers in the hands of the Governor.” This is the unlawful basis on which Newsom has collapsed California’s system of checks and balances, issuing 57 Executive Orders and changing over 400 laws unilaterally.

This ruling marks an end to Gavin Newsom’s one-man rule. It makes clear that the laws of the State of California do not countenance an autocracy under any circumstances – not for a single day, and certainly not for eight months with no end in sight.

The ruling is “tentative,” meaning Newsom has a few days to try to persuade the Judge to change her mind, but it’s rare for a tentative ruling to change. While Newsom can appeal, we are confident the decision is on solid legal ground and will stand.

Great News! So glad to see Nasty Nancy’s Nutty Nephew Nanny Newsom get pushed back. Nanny Newsom showed his desire to rule by diktat as any tyrant would. COVID today then any proclaimed emergency tomorrow will mean more power grabs in the name of the common good and fewer rights for Californians.

God bless Judge Sarah Heckman for shutting down Emperor Newsom in his reign of terror. Let’s hope the petition to recall him from office will be successful
