Judge extends order barring Ill. prison closures
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois judge is barring Gov. Pat Quinn from going forward with his plan to close two prisons, at least for now.
Circuit Judge Charles Cavaness cited safety concerns when he issued the injunction Wednesday in Alexander County.
It replaces a temporary restraining order he issued last month and requires the prisons to remain open while the administration and a union go through arbitration.
