U.s. Supreme Court
GARY | The nation's highest court has ruled Northwest Indiana steelworkers should not get back pay for the time they spent putting on hard hats and other protective gear before clocking in, or taking it off at the end of the shift.
Most employees are accustomed to getting paid the moment they sit down at their desk or punch in at their workplace.
It's encouraging to know our state government will spend tax dollars to defend our freedom of religion, as long as it is the "right" religion. Did I say encouraging? I meant scary.
CHICAGO | Energized by recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings, massive rainbow-covered crowds gathered Sunday for Chicago's annual Pride Parade with attendees, advocates and politicians vowing to continue the fight for gay marriage in Illinois.
Water fights used to be a fun thing to do on hot summer days. These days, they are deadly serious and can go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
HEBRON | A proposed ordinance dealing with protests at funerals drew a brief protest before it was approved Tuesday by the Hebron Town Council.
It's only 35 words carefully crafted by the Founding Fathers as part of the Constitution and uttered by fewer than four dozen men during our nation's history.
The U.S. Supreme Court made news, though not history, on March 2. In an 8-1 decision, the court determined a renegade Baptist "church" can picket military funerals, despite the added suffering imposed on bereaved parents and other mourners.
The Indiana Supreme Court's 3-2 ruling in the Barnes v. Indiana case last week cries out for clarification from the U.S. Supreme Court. The nays have it right.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana Tax Court has one word of advice for any Hoosier planning to claim their employment wages are not subject to state income tax -- "Don't."
SPRINGFIELD | About 1 million uninsured Illinoisans might be able to purchase health insurance by 2014, according to a recent report released by the Illinois Health Care Reform Implementation Council.
They are unfortunately back in the news again, those protesters who are bent on destroying the dignity of families who have lost loved ones in the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
SPRINGFIELD | Gun rights supporters think they have momentum on their side this year to allow Illinoisans to carry concealed weapons.
LANSING | The mother of a U.S. Marine whose funeral service was targeted by the Westboro Baptist Church is "disgusted" with the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that upheld the controversial church's right to stage similar protests.
SPRINGFIELD | After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a handgun ban in Chicago last year, lawmakers in Springfield started off the year by pushing to give people the right to carry concealed firearms in public.
HAMMOND | David C. Jensen, managing partner of Eichhorn & Eichhorn LLP, recently received the Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana's Diplomat Award.
SPRINGFIELD | If you shop online, you could be breaking Illinois law.
In 2005, in a major decision involving online commerce, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states could not discriminate between in-state and out-of-state producers in the sale of alcohol. If an in-state winery could ship direct to local customers, so too could out-of-state vineyards.
INDIANAPOLIS | So, what lessons should we take from Tuesday's election? Let me count the ways:
WASHINGTON | The retirement of John Paul Stevens, the Supreme Court's leading liberal but a justice who also could find conservative allies, will set off an election-year political battle over President Barack Obama's second high court pick.
