Esenberg said the issue is the governor’s abuse of his power.

A legal challenge to Gov. Tony Evers’ mask mandate was filed Monday in Polk County.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) asked a Polk County judge to place a hold on the governor’s face mask requirement.


A number of Wisconsin lawmakers want the state legislature to return to Madison and overrule the governor, but the Republican legislative leaders are not ready to go that far. Both Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos have said they want to see the governor’s emergency orders challenged in court.

This is not the first time WILL has taken Evers to court over the governor’s emergency orders. WILL filed a similar lawsuit in August after the governor’s second coronavirus order. That case is still pending.
