The fight over COVID-19 has become a legal battle in Illinois, pitting a Republican state lawmaker from a rural county against the Democratic governor.
Darren Bailey argued the state's latest stay-at-home order was taking an unfair economic toll on his constituents in Clay County. So he sued last week. And won. Sort of.
A Clay County circuit court judge issued a temporary restraining order against the state's extension of its stay-at-home policy.
That ruling only applies to one person, though — Bailey.
