November 17, 2020 10:47AM CST
A judge is saying Governor J.B. Pritzker was within his authority to issue executive orders related to COVID-19. Sangamon County Judge Raylene Grishow upheld the latest ruling yesterday on recent lawsuits challenging the legality of Pritzker’s orders intended to mitigate the spread of the virus. Grishow also ruled that schools aren’t exempt from state-issued COVID-19 mitigations. An attorney for the plaintiffs says they intend to appeal the rulings.
