Illinois (ECWd) –
Illinois State Representative Darren Bailey, in his individual capacity, has filed a lawsuit against Governor JB Pritzker today shortly after Pritzker’s daily press conferance. The complaint seeks an injunction from enforcement of the March 20, 2020, Executive Order citing such order goes beyond the 30-day limitation outlined in the Emergency Management Act.
Along with the complaint is a verified motion for a restraining order and preliminary injunction against the Governor. Along with those filings is a Legal Brief in support of the filings.
We urge everyone to download the files and review to better understand the action that was taken. We understand there are more lawsuits coming along the same lines and will update accordingly if and or when they are filed.

I don’t know – legally whether his order is correct – I believe he’s trying to do what he thinks is safe/good for the state with the info he’s given. If he didn’t care he’d open everything up and let the chips (or bodies) fall where they may to keep the economy hopping.
I find the whole virus thing strange – I know it’s making a mess of my local small businesses – but I hear of people who have gotten together in large groups which is stupid, so I guess I’m with the gov. this time – though another month is way long.

Good work! Haven’t read it all yet but noticed # 7 lists Cole County and #23 says Clay County. Probably will get thrown out on a typo.
Kirk AllenPosted at 08:57h, 24 April
They do not throw cases out for they type of scribners error and it is being addressed according to Rep. Bailey.

Yes _ Thanks for all you guys are doing. Hopefully it will pay off!! Much appreciated.

If I am hearing this correctly, its more of a demand of the governor to follow the legal procedure.
The big problem for non-doomers out here is this argument, if successful, just brings us to the next stage: holding an overwhelming ILGA vote in support of the shutdowns.
I guess that’s important on principle, but doesn’t get us to a point where our economy is not continuing to be destroyed by these risk-averse leaders.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 11:43h, 26 April
Will be praying that this virus get out of our state.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 11:45h, 26 April
JB Pritzker need to do better.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 14:37h, 26 April
Also this was the chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot’s fault she was the one the expected Pritzker to over extend the illinois stay at home order this was really sad.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 14:41h, 26 April
I have a god son was suppose to be graduating this year may 24th and he is 18 years old.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 16:06h, 26 April
The chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot don’t have no right to have Governor JB Pritzker over extending the illinois stay at home order. We are ready to resume back to normal and get our freedom back
Ernest AdamsPosted at 16:24h, 26 April
We need our children back in school and we need people back to work.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 21:37h, 26 April
That is what the problem was.
jesusfishfoodPosted at 20:38h, 27 April
THAT’S what hacked me off; Lightfoot’s done this twice in a row. Once around the end of the initial order in early April, and again just before the latest announcement. As mayor of Chicago, she has neither standing nor right to be able to make these statements to the press, because they seem to be seen as a oral contract by the Governor.
Ernest AdamsPosted at 16:37h, 26 April
I would like to say thanks again to Mr Bailey for getting the report about governor Pritzker that over extended the illinois stay at home order.

THANK YOU GOD FOR GOVERNER PRITZKER, TRYING TO SAVE LIVES!!!!!
Birgit christyPosted at 20:51h, 27 April
Rep. Baily and Chief Judge Michael McHaney….please, please let us get back to lead a normal life. It has been proven by Emergency Room Doctors (who by the way, have empty rooms and hospitals are empty) that locking healthy people up, and we have been locked up for 6 weeksl, weakens the immunue system of a healthy person and we will get sick if we don’t return to a normal life.
Please look at video in you tube: Dr. Erickson COVID-19 briefing…done 4 days ago. this video spealls out everything that I am trying to say..
Please, please let us start living a normal life, go back to work,earn money in orde to pay bills and so on. Sweden had no lock down and there are no unusual cases of sick people. By the way, Dr.Erickson said that from 100 people diagnosed with COVID-19 only 4 died and THEY HAD UNDERLYING CONDITIONS. During the flue season of 1917 to 1918 more people died from the flue than this time around from Corovirus.

Please let us life a normal life or we all will get sick from BEING LOCKED UP NOWHERE TO GO. PARKS CLOSED DOWN..We need to look for work to pay our bills or we will all by homeless in a short period of time.

How do we jump on board lawsuit?
I love Bailey! Sexiest Man in Illinois! Lol
J PPosted at 12:08h, 28 April
In taking this action against Gov. Pritzker, who is diligent in trying to keep us safe, you must be hoping your family & loved ones are FIRST IN LINE to get Covid 19.
Kirk AllenPosted at 12:27h, 28 April
How do you equate people standing up for their constitutional rights to them wanting to have their family and loves ones first in line to get COVID-19? Is it possible that people simply want their rights protected and laws followed? I dont think anyone in their right mind would want their family to get sick, nor do I support giving up our rights based on clear misinformation coming out of the government.
