Judge Declares Governor Newsom’s Abuse of Power Unconstitutional

(Sacramento, CA) — A State Superior Court finalized its ruling last night determining that Governor Gavin Newsom abused his authority by changing state law in violation of the California Constitution during the COVID-19 pandemic. Judge Sarah Heckman’s final ruling places a permanent injunction against the Governor which prevents him from unilaterally making or changing state law moving forward. The court also denied Newsom’s request to delay the enforcement of today’s decision. State Assemblymen James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) and Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) brought the lawsuit against Governor Newsom.
