Supreme Court takes on deadly E2 Nightclub case
Chicago attorneys will go before the Illinois Supreme Court Wednesday in the case of a deadly nightclub stampede.
They want the state’s high court to uphold charges against the owners of the E2 Nightclub.
Twenty-one people died there in 2003, after pepper spray was used to break up a fight.
A jury found co-owners Calvin Hollins and Dwain Kyles guilty of indirect criminal contempt, for ignoring a city housing court order to close the club.
But, an appellate court overturned the conviction.
