Student-athletes and their parents said Sunday they are filing a class-action lawsuit regarding the cancellation of fall sports this week.

In the suit, they plan to seek a temporary restraining order against the state’s order to cancel fall sports.

They gathered Sunday morning in the Gold Coast, in front of Gov. JB Pritzker’s Chicago home, to discuss their plans and said the suit would be filed Monday.

Student-athletes rallied outside the Thompson Center in Chicago’s Loop last weekend, as well as in the state capital of Springfield, asking Pritzker to work with the Illinois High School Association to bring back fall sports.
