On Wednesday, Governor Stitt amended his executive order removing the 11 p.m. curfew for in-person service at bars and restaurants.

This week a judge ruled, while the case unfolds in the courts, the temporary restraining order against the curfew will remain in place.

In July, the state is expected to present more evidence about why the governor ordinally called for the curfew.

But the group of bar owners suing the state believes even if the pandemic is over in six months, they'll continue to fight the governor's executive order. 

Their attorney claims Governor Stitt doesn't have the power to close down businesses. 

“If a judge declares that he didn’t have the authority this time, then he didn’t have the authority in March. So, what does that mean for all the businesses that went out of business for the phony shutdown,” said attorney Frank Urbanic.

The OKC attorney is also suing Oklahoma City over the power of Mayor David Holt.
