Oklahoma Supreme Court rules Trump rally can go on without CDC safety measures

The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Friday denied a request for an order directing a Tulsa arena to enforce the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s coronavirus recommendations at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally.

The groups suing could not establish a clear legal right to the order they were seeking, the court said in unanimous, one-page order.

The suit was brought by Tulsa businesses and residents who wanted coronavirus safety precautions, such as social distancing and face masks, to be mandated for the rally, which is scheduled for Saturday. The legal bid was initially denied by an Oklahoma judge on Wednesday, leading lawyers for the plaintiffs to turn to the state Supreme Court for help.
