Federal Lawsuit Against Pritzker Moving Ahead

A federal lawsuit against Governor J.B. Pritzker is moving forward. The suit was filed by Christian County Board Member Ray Koonce acting as a private citizen. It claims that Illinois residents’ “fundamental rights to associate with friends and family” are being unfairly infringed upon by Pritzker’s executive orders that issued and extended the stay at home order. Koonce says the Assistant State Attorney General’s Office has said they will represent Pritzker in the lawsuit.
