A judge issued a temporary restraining order in favor of Fox Fire restaurant, which is suing to block the restrictions.

The state is appealing. A hearing on the lawsuit is set for next month.

"The governor's constitutional and statutory authority to protect Illinois residents during the pandemic is clear," a spokesperson for the attorney general's office told ABC 7.
