Levine And Wolf Have No Plan To Return To “Normal”


It bears repeating; after six months, there is no plan to return to a situation where there are no restrictions imposed upon the people of the Commonwealth.” Judge William Stickman IV

“What was initially billed as measures necessary “to flatten the curve” and protect hospital capacity have become open-ended and ongoing restrictions aimed at a very different end…

“Further, while the harshest measures have been “suspended,” Defendants admit that they remain in-place and can be reinstated sua sponte as and when Defendants see fit. In other words, while not currently being enforced, Pennsylvania citizens remain subject to the re-imposition of the most severe provisions at any time. Further, testimony and evidence presented by the Defendants doses not establish any specified exit gate or end date of the emergency interventions. Rather, the record shows that Defendants view the presence of disease mitigation restrictions upon the citizens of Pennsylvania as a “new normal” and they have no actual plan to return to a state where all restrictions are lifted. It bears repeating; after six months, there is no plan to return to a situation where there are no restrictions imposed upon the people of the Commonwealth.”

Judge William Stickman IV in the case of Butler v. Thomas Wolf et al (Case 2:20-cv-00677-WSS Document 79 Filed 09/14/20 Pages 16-17 of 66)
