Why should the law exist? What public interest does it put forward?
Gradually, the benefits will have to compete with neighbors or the schools will become a second tier employer. Like choosing to work at Costco versus WalMart.

You can pick up the phone right now, call somebody, record the conversation without permission and not violate any state law. That’s the result of a pair of Illinois Supreme Court rulings last month. Now, one lawmaker is scrambling to find a solution.

Gas stations in Chicago can’t get liquor licenses, but one station owner thought he had a loophole: A separate convenience store attached to, but separate from, his fuel business. After two courts shut down the liquor store at the city’s request, the gas station owner filed a legal-malpractice claim against the attorney who, he said, guaranteed his separate business would work. The 1st District Appellate Court has affirmed the dismissal of that claim.

Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot held in Hong Kong. +Loyola University Chicago

It’s a scenario ripped straight from the science fiction films of yesteryear, and it’s one step closer to reality in Illinois. The state House passed a measure Friday allowing police to obtain warrants via Skype or other Web video services such as FaceTime or Google Hangouts. #skype   #hangouts   #facetime
