Today, Judge Virginia Kendall denied the motion by the City of Chicago to dismiss the case as moot.
For the foregoing reasons, the City’s motion to dismiss the case as moot is denied. By September 30, 2011, the parties shall file an agreed proposed injunction order, or separate proposed injunction orders if they cannot agree. Ezell must file her amended complaint by October 15, 2011. The parties shall appear for a status on October 26, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. to discuss the schedule going forward.
An injunction is going to be issued while the case progresses against the new rules Chicago has laid down.
I am actually pleased to be wrong in my opinion of Judge Kendall. It does appear that she is following the instructions of the 7th Circuit. Read her order, here
This is excellent news!
