Assemblymen Kevin Kiley, R-Rocklin and James Gallagher, R-Yuba City filed the suit last year, claiming Newsom had unconstitutionally used executive action under the California Emergency Services Act when he changed how the state would conduct elections that year. The lawmakers, who represented themselves in court, claimed Newsom was not allowed to create legislation, even in times of emergency.
Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman sided with the lawmakers last fall, prohibiting the governor from exercising any powers under the Emergency Services Act which “amend, alter, or change existing statutory law or make new statutory law or legislative policy.”
But the higher court on Wednesday ruled that Heckman’s injunction raises “matters of great public concern regarding the Governor’s orders in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic emergency.”
“This statutory purpose, while broad, gives the governor sufficient guidance, i.e., to issue orders that further a coordinated emergency response,” the justices wrote.
In a joint statement, Kiley and Gallagher described the court’s conclusion regarding emergency powers as “startling,” and criticized justices for relying upon a federal case from outside California.

You understand the decision much better when you realize that most of the higher-level judges in this country are Corrupt, or Blackmailed, or accept Bribes...or any combination thereof.

Why would CA need to orchestrate an offensive to ensure that Donald Trump did not win the states election? Trump was never going to win in CA. Such a move would have been a wast of time for the one party rullling class in CA.
