Illinois Judge Extends Order Barring Illinois Prison Closures
Circuit Judge Charles Cavaness cited safety concerns Wednesday when he issued the injunction. 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.
The injunction covers Quinn's plan to close prisons at Dwight and Tamms, as well as three halfway houses and two youth prisons.
