Wulf part of lawsuit against Powers, other health leaders

Seventeen Wisconsin residents, including Thomas “Cap” Wulf of Sturgeon Bay, have filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the “Safer At Home” orders that were extended last week were unconstitutional.  Wulf, who owns Wulf Brothers, Inc., is a former City of Sturgeon Bay councilmember and chair of the Waterfront Redevelopment Authority.   According to, the lawsuit filed said that the orders forced business owners to close “under threat of imprisonment” and “forego their rights to free speech and religious exercise.”   It also says several county and state officials, including Gov. Tony Evers, “enforced unlawful local COVID-19 lockdown orders.” The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday and named numerous municipal public health officers around the state, including Door County Public Health Manager Susan Powers.  Several counties and cities extended a form of the state’s “Safer at Home” order after the Wisconsin Supreme Court blocked it on May 13.
