Prosecutor’s memo: Pritzker’s stay home order may not survive scrutiny in court

Says the state’s Appellate Prosecutor’s Office:

“My research leaves me less than confident that a reviewing court will hold that the Governor has the authority close businesses (sic), bar attendance at church services and assemblies in excess of ten citizens (particularly if they are assembling to redress grievances),” Robinson wrote.

“From a strict enforcement standpoint, although well-intentioned on an emergency basis, the EO (executive order) is very broad and does not appear to meet strict scrutiny – this is not to mention the EO appears to be beyond the framework of the specific Act [it] cites as support.”
