Three week ban on in-person restaurants and bars being challenged in federal court

The three-week ban on in-person dining at restaurants across Michigan is still in place for another week, and now it's being challenged in federal court.

 

A hearing will be held today as the restaurant association says the restrictions on bars and restaurants violates state law as well as the interstate commerce clause of the constitution, but the same judge denied bars and restaurants a restraining order previously.

 

The judge hinted that the state health department may have more authority in times of a pandemic than the governor had when the state supreme court found the governor could not limit bars and restaurants earlier this year
