7. Yep, all 82 illegal appointments struck down!

Niess' ruling also struck down 82 appointments Walker made during the waning days of his administration, all of which were confirmed by Republican state Senators in the lame-duck session. Those appointments included Public Service Commissioner Ellen Nowak and University of Wisconsin Regent Scott Beightol, both of whom were confirmed in December to terms that end in 2023.

"The appointments are ordered temporarily vacated as a necessary consequence of this temporary injunction," Niess wrote.

What remains to be seen is whether Evers will act on any of these powers before the case is appealed, and whether a higher court will block him from taking action. The final say in this case would fall to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, where conservatives hold a 4-3 majority.
