Judge Grischow ruled not only in favor of the TRO for the named plaintiffs, but also included broad and concise language specifically instructing all school districts that the Governor’s Covid-19 Mandates were illegal. Copy of the Ruling:

Attorney Tom Devore, who filed the suits, stated on Sunday, February 6: “Since 5:00 P.M. on Friday evening until this evening, we have had over 150 and pushing 200 school districts go mask optional in the State of Illinois. Guess what? That is hundreds of thousands of children. That is no fringe minority. That’s more districts than are in the lawsuit. That is a powerhouse. There is no Court order which directly authorized district wide policies and your districts knew that. Your districts made these choices today on their own volition, executive order be damned. This shows you what the local school districts across this state think of his authoritarian rule. The districts just needed a little encouragement. At this point there is no reason whatsoever for them to go back to mask required policies for any reason whatsoever, regardless of whether there is a TRO or not. NEVER!! It doesn’t matter. The TRO gave that burst of momentum needed to put an end to this madness. ISBE can’t make these districts comply with any of this stuff and they can defend themselves just like many districts are doing by taking ISBE to task. I will say it again, in that any district who made the choice in the last two days to go district wide mask optional, do not ever return. Absent some unwaivable conflict, I will represent any these districts across the whole state against ISBE should they try and come after them. I won’t charge them a penny. At a minimum, give me a call and I will tell you how to beat ISBE.

Here is a list of School Districts who responded promptly and appropriately to Judge Grischow’s legal directive, and have gone Mask Optional so they will be in legal compliance as of today, February 7.
