WENATCHEE — Supporters and opponents of Gov. Jay Inslee’s quarantine measures will have to wait a little longer to see if the shutdowns will remain intact.
Of the at least seven lawsuits seeking to end Inslee’s orders, two could have preliminary decisions coming in the next few days.
On Thursday morning, Chelan County Superior Court Judge Kristin Ferrera ended a hearing by saying she’ll take hours of arguments under consideration before determining the fate of the case, filed by multiple plaintiffs, including former state Rep. Cary Condotta and four Wenatchee City Council members.
