By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On May 20, 2020

Naperville, IL. (ECWd) –

The Naperville Park District field an Emergency Motion for Temporary Restraining Order against Governor JB Pritzker.

From the Emergency Motion:

  • This Court should grant a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction prohibiting the Governor from continuing to thwart the Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners from exercising their statutory jurisdiction over the Park District’s property and programs in response to a variety of threats to health confronting the community.
  • The harm to the community from this unauthorized restriction upon the Park District is of such a serious nature that a temporary restraining order needs to be entered immediately so that decisions can be made about how best to deal with the various health threats confronting the constituents of the Park District, so that the statutory power of the Park District is not thwarted, and so that the power exercised by the Governor is properly limited to that which is given under the IEMAA.
  • The Park District is merely requesting that the Governor abide by the limits of his authority in the IEMAA, not disregard the jurisdiction conferred by the Park District Code to the Park District, and honor paragraph 10 of the E0 32 to permit the Naperville Park District to determine its Essential Governmental Functions.

    I didn’t know they were closed. I thought parks were open all along for outdoor activities, guess not.

      I don’t know technically on that, but I believe what is meant is the running of various programs for residents via the Park District that serve as community support services. The lack of these programs resulting in negative community consequences that they mention in the full suit filing (see the post on that).
