RACINE– The Wisconsin Institute for Law & & Liberty (WILL) has submitted a suit asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to stop the Racine Unified School District (RUSD) from switching to virtual-only instruction.
The school closure order was released on Nov. 11 by the Racine Public Health Department, needing all schools within its jurisdiction to close their buildings beginning Nov. 27 to Jan. 15 in order to fight a growing rise of COVID-19 cases in the state.
WILL is asking the Court to accept the case and obstruct the present Racine closure order.
“The Wisconsin Supreme Court took our legal challenges and provided an injunction when Dane County unlawfully attempted to close all schools,” said WILL President and General Counsel Rick Esenberg. “Because the issues presented in Racine are so similar, it is our hope the Court will take the original action and release a similar injunction in Racine while the Dane County case is under consideration.”
