“An Illinois mother said her teenage son died by suicide after struggling with isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mother, Lisa Moore, is now suing Gov. J.B. Pritzker because she believes her son Trevor Till’s October death was a “proximate cause” of the state’s restrictions, the lawsuit says.
The suit was filed last month in LaSalle County Circuit Court by Moore and four other parents against the governor and the Illinois High School Association. It accuses Pritzker of canceling or indefinitely delaying high school sports and activities while allowing college and professional athletics to continue.
“There is no rational or reasonable basis to prohibit certain high school sports while at the same time allowing the same sports to be played by college and professional athletes,” the lawsuit says.”
