The battle between Attorney General Jeff Landry and Governor John Bel Edwards over COVID-19 regulations is not over. The Louisiana Supreme Court has overturned the ruling in Edwards vs. House of Representatives and has sent the case back to district court. Judge William Morvant initially ruled on Nov. 12 that a petition from the House that would have prevented the governor from issuing a new executive order pertaining to COVID-19 restrictions was unconstitutional. Landry released a statement on Monday that said, in part, the action taken by the Supreme Court maintains that Louisiana is not a dictatorship. Landry also said no elected official, including the Governor, can ignore or reject the checks and balances that underpin the government. Landry ended the statement by writing that the wise course of action would be for the Governor to meet with the Legislature and establish common-sense guidelines which fall within the law.
