Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is appealing a judge’s recent ruling that gave the state one week to give gyms a way to apply for reopening.
Ducey on Wednesday filed a notice of appeal and a motion to delay enforcement of Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason’s ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit filed by the Mountainside Fitness and EOS Fitness chains.
Thomason said gyms “must be provided a prompt opportunity to apply for reopening. The process for doing so must be in place within one week from the date of entry of this Order.”
Ducey is asking for that order to be suspended until the appeals court rules.
“Certainly, any potential harm that may result from staying the Order pales in comparison to the harm that will result from the increased spread of COVID-19,” the motion to stay argues.
