“Four Western Pennsylvania counties, four Republican lawmakers and several businesses have sued the governor and a top health official over business shutdown orders and reopening plans in Pennsylvania, saying the actions are arbitrary and violate civil rights.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court on Friday, names Gov. Tom Wolf and Rachel Levine, secretary of the health department.

The plaintiffs are the counties of Washington, Butler, Greene and Fayette, along with U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly of Butler County and state Reps. Marci Mustello of Butler County, Daryl Metcalfe of Cranberry and Tim Bonner of Grove City.”
