Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s motion to dismiss a challenge from Geneva restaurant FoxFire to the governor’s executive orders has been denied.
For more than a year, Pritzker has had executive orders leveling blanket restrictions and closures on restaurants across the state to slow the spread of COVID-19. FoxFire challenged the orders in October.
A hearing on whether to dismiss the case, a motion made by the governor, was heard last month.
Sangamon County Circuit Court Judge Raylene Grischow denied Pritzker’s motion Wednesday.
