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.
