SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WEHT)- Illinois State Rep. John Cabello has filed a lawsuit against Gov. JB Pritzker’s executive order.
The suit follows a similar lawsuit filed by fellow State Rep. Darren Bailey last week. Bailey argued that Pritzker does not have the authority to issue a quarantine, only the Illinois Department of Public Health.
A judge sided with Bailey but only lifted the stay at home order for Bailey, opening the way for additional lawsuits.
