The Illinois Supreme Court has allowed a stay in the Clay County case involving Governor J.B. Pritzker and State Representative Darren Bailey.

The stay was allowed in the citation for contempt to be considered against the governor for issuing emergency orders after a July 2 ruling in Clay County court that earlier orders by the governor were improper. Judge Michael McHaney had ordered Pritzker to be in court in Louisville this Friday to address the matter. He was also ordered by McHaney to rescind the orders issued since the judge’s decision or be held in Clay County Jail until he did so.

The state supreme court received a filing Monday from the Illinois Attorney General’s office asking for a decision by the high court as to whether the governor is within his authority to issue emergency orders. The Clay County case is on hold until the ruling by the Supreme Court.
