Tuesday afternoon, a Superior Court of California Judge denied a Temporary Restraining Order sought by the County of Fresno’s Emergency Services Director against defendants Immanuel Schools and its Chief Executive Officer and Superintendent of Schools, Ryan Wood. Fresno County’s complaint alleges “the nuisance and violation of the State and County health orders…”
The judge’s denial order stated, “Plaintiff has failed to make a sufficient affirmative factual showing of urgency for the matter to be heard on an ex parte basis.”
Pleased with today’s ruling, Tyler & Bursch Partner, Robert Tyler commented, “This is just the first step in defending the constitutional rights of Immanuel and its students.”
“Tomorrow morning Immanuel Schools will continue to welcome students on campus for in-person instruction as a result of the judge’s ruling this afternoon,” said Immanuel’s attorney, Jennifer Bursch, Partner at Tyler & Bursch.
