The US Supreme Court won't hear an appeal by a Pennsylvania politician and businesses to lift the state's coronavirus restrictions.
Without comment, the court on Wednesday declined to hear the case.
Gov. Tom Wolf ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses to close due to the coronavirus pandemic, although the state has now begun to reduce some restrictions in certain areas.
The appeal — filed by the campaign of Danny DeVito, an Allegheny County Republican, realtor Kathy Gregory, "B and J" laundry, Blueberry Hill golf course and Caledonia Land Company — asserted that the Democratic governor's order is doing "unprecedented damage to the economy."
Without intervention, the petitioners say they and "tens of thousands of other businesses may not be able to recover from the severe financial distress caused by the Order."
The Pennsylvania state Supreme Court rejected the challenge to the Wolf's order last month.
