Peoria businessman files lawsuit against Pritzker



Screen Shot 2020-05-08 at 3.24.17 PMA Peoria businessman is suing Gov. JB Pritzker, alleging the state’s stay-at-home order is unconstitutional and therefore does not apply to his business.

Further, Adam White, owner of RC Outfitters (formerly Running Central) is requesting a temporary restraining order to block enforcement of the order at his business. Meanwhile, in defiance of the stay-at-home order, White has reopened the store, 311 SW Water St.

The suit in part echoes lawsuits made by two state lawmakers in claiming the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act gives the governor only one 30-day time frame to declare a stay-at-home order. White’s suit pertains only to his business, as does the petition seeking a temporary restraining order because of “irreparable harm” caused by a curtailing of business.
