OWOSSO (WJRT) (05/11/2020) – A Shiawassee County Circuit Court judge has ruled in favor of Owosso barber Karl Manke, allowing him to stay open despite the executive orders barring shops like his from taking customers.
The judge denied a temporary restraining order on Monday that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel sought to close the barbershop, which is violating an order from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
Barbershops, hairstyling salons and spas all are deemed non-essential, so they aren’t allowed to operate during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Show the proof. Show that people are actually being harmed,” said attorney David Kallman, who is representing Manke.
