Quincy, Illinois (ECWd) -
The Quincy Public School Board has been named in a verified complaint brought by a parent of one of a 4th-grade student. The suit was filed over the mandates created for children to return to school.
"Quinn, and her minor child, will suffer irreparable injuries based on the implementation of the Mandates because the Mandates infringe on the minor child's right to an in-person education within the public school free from these unlawful general mandates which are tantamount to law and which were not promulgated by the legislature."
Anyone willing to truly grasp the importance of this case should take the time to read the case law provided in the Memorandum in Support of the filing. We took the liberty of highlighting some of the key points in those cases. While we understand the numerous health concerns being raised across this state relating to COVID-19, we ask that those concerns be properly placed within the rule of law. This case highlights the importance of following the laws passed by the Legislature rather than allowing public bodies or State Agencies to create their own laws as they deem fit, which is what appears to be taking place currently with schools throughout the state.
The hearing for Preliminary Injunction is scheduled to be heard next week, July 16th, 2020 in the Adams County seat, Quincy, Illinois.
