Clay Co. , IL. (ECWd) -
The UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS has issued their order and it is not good for Governor Pritzker as all indications point to him as a loser in the State Circuit Court.
"For the above-stated reasons, Plaintiff’s emergency motion to remand (Doc. 7) is GRANTED. It is hereby ORDERED that, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1447(c), this action be REMANDED to the Circuit Court for the Fourth Judicial Circuit, Clay County, Illinois. No fees or costs are awarded. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to transmit a certified copy of this Order to the clerk of the state court, and thereafter to CLOSE this case."
We encourage everyone to take the time to read the ruling from the Federal Court to grasp why the Governor and the Attorney General were wrong in their efforts to delay justice in the State Circuit Court.
We anticipate Tom DeVore will be coordinating a hearing date first thing in the morning.
