Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Holds Coronavirus Press Conference

Georgia's Governor Kemp and Atlanta's mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms have been in a legal entanglement ever since the mayor announced that Atlanta would be making face masks mandatory in public spaces in an effort to flatten the curve in coronavirus cases. Kemp retaliated with a lawsuit against the city's mayor and city council, stating that they have no legal authority to overstep his statewide order that reccommends masks but doesnt make them mandatory. Since the filing, two federal judges have recused themselves from the case. A third judge has been appointed to the case at a new hearing date set for next Tuesday, July 28.
