Illinois (ECWd) -
Tom DeVore with Silver Lake Law ltd., representing Iraq war veteran James Mainer, in his individual capacity and on behalf of all citizens similarly situated, filed a Motion for Temporary Restraining Order against Governor JB Pritzker in his official capacity in Clay County this afternoon. .
Governor Pritzker faced a similar filing by Darren Bailey in which the Governor referred to Bailey's filing as grandstanding and political.
Considering Mainer is not in politics, fought for freedom in Iraq, and is now fighting for his family and the citizens of this state, is the Governor going to tell this veteran he is grandstanding and being political?
Does he dare try to drag this patriot into the Federal Court in another effort to forum shop?
In the game of politics, optics are everything and as it stands, Pritzker's optics are crumbling.
The hearing is to be heard at 1 pm Friday, May 22, 2020, in Clay County Circuit Court.
