A Barron County judge has denied an effort by the Tavern League of Wisconsin to strike down a limit on public gatherings, which puts a capacity limit back in effect for local businesses. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Judge James Babler said because they could not prove they were complying with the order, the Tavern League of Wisconsin and two other bars involved in the suit could not say they were harmed by it. It is a reversal from what Sawyer County Judge John Yackel ruled last week blocking the order. In a statement from Tavern League of Wisconsin President Chris Marsicano, he expressed “disappointment in the ruling and catastrophic effects it will continue to have on small businesses across Wisconsin.” Governor Tony Evers called the decision critically important to prevent the spread of the virus. The order, which went into effect on October 8th, expires on November 6th.
