In what can only be reported as good news for municipalities in Illinois, the Illinois Supreme Court issued its opinion in the high school bleachers case, ruling in favor of Crystal Lake.
The opinion is pretty short, but to the point. The Court acknowledges that the case turns on the issue of whether a school district is subject to local zoning and land use regulations.
On September 24, 2015, the Illinois Supreme Court issued its opinion in the case of Kristine O’Toole v. The Chicago Zoological Society.
The issue in that case was whether the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act, 745 ILCS 10/1.1 et seq., applies to the Chicago Zoological Society.
