Following Illinois state representative Darren Bailey’s lawsuit challenging Governor J.B. Pritzker’s stay at home order, filed on April 23, another state representative, John Cabello, has also filed suit against the governor. Both Bailey and Cabello are Republicans.
Cabello’s case was filed in Winnebago County on April 29 and seeks injunctive relief against the governor, presumably to challenge the validity of the governor’s stay at home order. The first court date is currently scheduled for August 6.
Cabello, like Bailey, is represented by attorney Thomas DeVore.
