   CHICAGO (AP) - An Illinois judge promises to rule on the future of a lawsuit seeking to legalize same-sex marriage in the state.

   The lawsuit was filed last year by 25 gay couples who want the right to marry.

   Cook County Judge Sophia Hall is expected to rule Friday on a motion to dismiss the case.

   Lawyers for five downstate county clerks who are defending the ban want the case tossed. Plaintiffs' attorneys want the judge to let the lawsuit stand - then rule immediately that they won the lawsuit and that the ban is illegal.

   The clerks won permission to defend the ban after Cook County's top prosecutor and the Illinois attorney general refused to do so, saying the 17 year old ban violates the state constitution.

   Illinois legalized civil unions two years ago.

 

SLCC Meramec instructor honored for saving student

Friday, 27 September 2013 03:08 Published in Local News

   St. Louis Community College Trustees are honoring the instructor who stopped an attack on a student in a Meramec campus bathroom last April, by creating a scholarship in her name.  

   Adjunct Professor Aurora Hill had heard Blythe Grupe's screams and rushed to her aid, confronting her attacker and restraining him until police arrived.  Eighteen yr. old Jevon Mallory has been charged in the attack. 

   Hill, who teaches English part time at the school, was honored with a resolution and standing ovation at last night's board meeting.  The $5,000 scholarship in her name will be aimed at helping students who struggled in high school make the transition to college.

   The victim was also at last night's ceremony.  Blythe Grupe told Fox 2 News that Hill's actions made the difference that day and she glad the college is honoring her teacher.  "It's just been such a relief knowing that good things can come out of this," Grupe said.

   The school's mishandling of the attack aftermath led to resignations by several high level college officials.  

   Both Hill and Grupe say its time to move forward.

Quinn: Juvenile justice has made great strides

Friday, 27 September 2013 02:15 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says he hasn't seen a report released Thursday that details inadequate conditions at juvenile detention centers, but Illinois has made "important strides" with fewer juveniles incarcerated.

   Quinn told reporters Thursday that Illinois has to have a system where young people who make mistakes pay their debt and face consequences. He says if the report raises issues, they'll be looked at.

   Watchdog group the John Howard Association released a review Thursday on conditions at a Kewanee facility specializing in treatment for juveniles with mental health issues.

   Another report was submitted in federal court as part of the settlement. It describes incarcerated teens mowing lawns during the school day and being routinely subjected to more solitary confinement than necessary.

   Juvenile detention centers house more than 800 juvenile inmates.
