INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Supreme Court denied an emergency request by state Attorney General Todd Rokita to stall Republican Governor Eric Holcomb's lawsuit challenging the increased power state legislators gave themselves to intervene during public health emergencies following conservative objections to his COVID-19 actions.
Rokita petitioned the Indiana Supreme Court last month after a Marion County judge ruled against arguments from his office that he alone has the legal authority to represent the state in court and can decide whether the new law is allowed under the state constitution. The court denied Rokita's request 5-0 for the trial court hearing.
