State Supreme Court hears first case challenging Gov. Lamont executive order
The state Supreme Court heard its first case challenging Gov. Ned Lamont's executive order to close bars during the pandemic.
The suit was filed by Kristine Casey, the owner of Casey's Irish Pub in Milford. She says it's not right that she's still forced to pay her $3,200 a month rent while the state has kept her bar closed since March.
Her attorney, Jonathan Klein, says the state's law allowing executive orders is unconstitutional.
Chief Justice Richard Robinson says if Lamont's orders are unreasonable, state lawmakers should pass laws reversing them.
There is no confirmation on when a ruling will be issued.
