Read the full lawsuit filed by 7 DeKalb County restaurant and bar owners against Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health director Ngozi Ezike.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday, and seeks a temporary restraining order to stop state officials from forcing them to shut down indoor dining beginning Saturday. A DeKalb County Judge is expected to rule on the matter at 1 p.m. Friday.
Instead of further shutdowns, the case asks for local control to be made by the DeKalb County Health Department, and mitigations based on county metrics, not regional ones.
The owners of Fatty’s Pub & Grill in DeKalb, Remington Gastropub in Malta, The Lincoln Inn and Faranda’s Banquet Center in DeKalb, Ellwood Steak & Fish House in DeKalb, The Junction Eating Place in DeKalb, MVP Sports Bar in Sycamore and El Jimador Mexican Grill, which opened in downtown DeKalb on Tuesday, are represented by Sycamore-based Cronauer Law.
