(The Center Square) – The Illinois attorney general is asking the Illinois Supreme Court to take up the legal challenge to Gov. J.B. Pritzker's COVID-19 mitigations in schools.
The Fourth District Court of Appeals late Thursday found Pritzker's appeal of a lower court blocking mask and exclusion rules for students and vaccine or testing mandates for teachers and school staff moot.
The court said the emergency rules promulgated by the governor’s executive order expired and new rules filed this week were blocked by a legislative panel.
On Friday, Attorney General Kwame Raoul said in a statement the ruling does not affect the governor’s executive orders, only the emergency “technical” rule filed by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
