Kentucky's attorney general says a judge has signaled he intends to sign an order blocking the governor's emergency orders dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.

Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Friday a judge in Boone County indicated he would require the Democratic governor to “follow the legal process” when taking executive actions.

Cameron says the ruling won't hamper public health officials in ensuring the safety of Kentuckians.

Gov. Andy Beshear’s office says it's anticipating a court order voiding all of the governor's directives. Beshear spokeswoman Crystal Staley says the governor will be ready to “take further action" to protect lives.
