Baker County Circuit Court Judge Ruling


Today, Baker County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Shirtcliff issued a ruling in favor of plaintiffs seeking relief from Governor Brown’s Executive Orders. The Oregonian provided a link to Judge Shirtcliff’s ruling.

Since the ruling was issued, Baker County has received a number of questions about what the Circuit Court decision means for businesses and other organizations. Baker County is seeking guidance from the County’s legal counsel, and will share information when it’s available, but does not have any specific guidance available at this time.

Governor Brown issued a statement saying, “Today’s ruling from the Baker County Circuit Court will be appealed to the Oregon Supreme Court within hours to keep my emergency orders in effect.”
