We Are the People Illinois! has issued the following press release:

An Illinois citizen group called We Are the People Illinois! announced today that a writ of mandamus was filed with the Supreme Court of Illinois requesting intervention to compel Gov. J.B. Pritzker to uphold the current state laws and policies in place to protect the people against discrimination and ensure individual health privacy. Illinois is currently one of five states across the country that has successfully submitted a writ of mandamus against their local governor. The Illinois Supreme Court will rule on this writ on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021.

A writ of mandamus is used when a lower court has abused its discretion by ignoring the law and is acting outside of its authority. In this case, Gov. Pritzker has usurped the constitutionally afforded powers of the Illinois General Assembly and mandated health care treatments to Illinois citizens, in contravention of state law over the past 18 months.
