Fedral judge slams government shutdown

The chief federal judge of the U.S .District Court of Northern Illinois is highly critical of the federal government shutdown.

Judge Ruben Castillo says if the government doesn’t bring an end to the shutdown his 160 employees will have to come to work but will not get paid.

Castillo spoke at a Federal Bar Association luncheon in the Loop today and issued an order putting a stay on all civil cases.

If a trial has not started in a civil case, it will not start until federal funds are flowing once again.
