Several lawsuits challenging Governor J.B. Pritzker are back in court. Hearings were held yesterday on suits brought by state Representative Darren Bailey and several other plaintiffs, with arguments presented alleging that Pritzker abused his power by implementing the order near the beginning of the pandemic. The government made a motion to dismiss several consolidated cases. No word on when a ruling will be made.
