Dear Readers of The Extra Mile:
Schools are beginning to wind down the last month of the school year, but the world around us is doing anything but wind down. CPI has leveled somewhat but remains at a level unseen in 40 years, the U.S. Department of Education is due to comprehensively review the Section 504 regulations for the first time in 45 years, and the Supreme Court appears poised to reshape the legal landscape. From a leaked opinion to a praying-coach case to a free-speech case involving the flying of a religious flag from a flagpole outside City Hall, the Supreme Court has been busy. We will be sharing more information on the free-speech flag case in next month's edition of The Extra Mile and will report on the praying-coach case when a decision is issued.
This month's edition includes another Supreme Court case, this one involving censure of a board member, as well as updates on more COVID litigation out of Sangamon County, an anticipated tax bill delay in Cook County, and a case and settlement involving a professor's refusal to use a student's preferred pronouns.
Also, be sure to check out the "In Case You Missed It" reminders below, as it's been a notably busy month!
