NOW: Wisconsin Supreme Court to hear arguments over ’Safer at Home’ order

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58/AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday, May 1, ruled that it will take up the case regarding the lawsuit brought on by the Republican-controlled Legislature, and Gov. Tony Evers administration's extension of the "Safer at Home" order.

Republican legislators filed the lawsuit directly with the high court last month after state Department of Health Services Secretary Andrea Palm extended the order to May 26.

The lawmakers say Palm lacked the authority to extend the order and asked the court to issue a temporary injunction blocking it.

The court ruled 6-1 on Friday afternoon to hold oral arguments on Tuesday morning, May 5.
