  • Attorney General’s office issues opinions on the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act*
    Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office recently issued two opinions regarding the implementation of the new State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (added by Public Act 93-615, effective November 19, 2003, as amended by Public Act 93-617, effective December 9, 2003, to be codified at 5 ILCS 430/1-1 et seq.).
  • Someone you should know: David Koski
    In early May 2004, a staff meeting was held for the employees of the Winnebago County State's Attorney's Office.
  • Case law update
    Arvia v. Madigan, No. 95590 (April 15, 2004). Although facial challenge to "zero tolerance law" (625 ILCS 5/11-501.8 (West 2000)) does not require exhaustion of administrative remedies and is not waived by failure to file administrative review of decision by the Secretary of State to deny motion to rescind summary suspension of plaintiff's driver's license, trial court erred when it held that law violates due process and equal protection.
