DOVER, DE (AP) – Attorneys for Gov. John Carney have told a federal judge the coronavirus restrictions he imposed on businesses and individuals in Delaware are constitutional under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling from more than a century ago. Carney’s lawyers also said in a court filing that a Delaware cleric has no standing to challenge those restrictions and has not been harmed. Rev. Christopher Bullock filed a lawsuit last month challenging the restrictions as unconstitutional. Carney has since eliminated many of them, but Bullock wants a permanent injunction to prevent the imposition of such restrictions in the future.
