Illinois Supreme Court Oral Arguments to be Streamed Online Wednesday, Jan. 23

The Illinois Supreme Court will livestream oral arguments in four cases on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

The court will hear arguments in the cases of Van Dyke v. WhiteCounty of Will v. Illinois Pollution Control BoardLMP Services, Inc. v. City of Chicago, and Doe v. The First Congregational Church of Dundee. The livestream will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The case of Van Dyke v. White concerns whether the Illinois Secretary of State or the Illinois Department of Insurance have the authority to regulate the sale of indexed annuities. County of Will v. Illinois Pollution Control Board involves the defendant's new regulations regarding the prevention of groundwater contamination from waste disposal sites that use construction materials. 

LMP Services, Inc. v. City of Chicago involves the constitutionality of several provisions of the City of Chicago's licensure of food trucks. The city created strict guidelines for the locations where food trucks could park, and also required the trucks to provide an active GPS beacon so the city could track the trucks' movements and inspect the trucks at any time. The trial court held that the city's requirement that food trucks park at least 200 feet from the entrance of any building that contains a restaurant was a reasonable use of the city's home rule powers because it was protecting its property tax base. 

The primary issue in Doe v. The First Congregational Church of Dundee is whether, in order to state a cause of action for negligent supervision, a plaintiff must plead that the employer knew of the employee's unfitness for the job. 

More information about the arguments can be found on the Illinois Supreme Court's website
