Bailey vacates restraining order; promises stronger case against Pritzker due to “newly-discovered facts”



Screen Shot 2020-04-28 at 3.50.37 PMLOUISVILLE, IL – Thursday, State Representative Darren Bailey asked the Appellate Court to voluntarily vacate his restraining order against Governor J.B. Pritzker’s Executive Order. 

However, Bailey said, his efforts seeking the Court’s determination that the Governor exceeded his authority will not end but will only get stronger – based on "newly discovered facts and issues."

“In light of new documentation recently uncovered, which the Governor’s office and the Department of Public Health failed to provide as required by Illinois law, we feel it is in the best interest of the people of the State of Illinois to voluntarily ask the Appellate Court to vacate the temporary restraining order.  I will then ask to file an amended complaint in the circuit court alleging the newly discovered facts and issues.

“This new information offers a more complete picture and brings to light additional problems in regard to the procedural and substantive shortcomings of the Governor’s office and the Board of Health’s safeguarding of the civil rights of the citizens of the state. This will strengthen our efforts to ensure the liberty of all Illinoisans.”

Rep. Bailey said if the State Supreme Court is going to hear this case, he wants the Justices to have all of the information available because their important decision will impact the lives of millions of citizens.
