This issue of the newsletter begins with a preview by Andy Creighton of an important case pending before the Illinois Supreme Court. A ruling may come before the Court adjourns next Spring. Next, Cynthia Ervin gives us the benefit of three formal and two informal opinions issued by the Illinois Attorney General which relate to administrative law. She also tells us about an upcoming semi- nar dealing with the Open Meetings Act and the Freedom of Information Act. That article provides a segue to a very interesting and unusual Open Meetings Act decision dealing with the word “litigation.” Lastly, read about a new benefit offered this year to newsletter article authors.
