The money will be released immediately to Roman Szabelski. His attorney says the money will likely be used to rehire the employees at Burr Oak in Alsip.
Szabelski laid off the eight workers Aug. 14 after running out of money.
Burr Oak's assets were frozen after four people were charged in the alleged grave-reselling scheme that authorities say netted about $300,000.
The case will be back in court Wednesday, when Szabelski is expected to report how much money he needs to reopen the cemetery and when that could happen.
