It’s started. The federal courts are beginning to shut down.
On October 7, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois issued an Order which stated that all civil cases involving the U.S. as a party are suspended and nothing will be done in those cases unless there is a special need.
This Order does not affect any criminal cases.
So, those of us with civil lawsuits against the U.S. are SOL until our politicians stop all of the posturing and get back to running our government.
