IF this is allowed it truly is an injustice to his wife. Now they ask for the test results meansRead More only one thing. These lawyers need to go back to school and learn that a defense isn't grasping for straws. There licenses should be revoked and if granter the lawyers pay for the testing and work for free from this point forward for being so stupid not to have had this done B 4 he was found GULITY. These lawyers are botton feeders and only see $$$$$$$ signs. Scum would be a good start to describe this law firm. Rick Beule, remember that name cause he doesn't do the job right the first time. If your life is on the line do you really want Rick Beule to save your life, the 2nd time at a conserverative cost of $200,000 to $500,000 for another trial. Or do you want a law firm that does it RIGHT the FIRST time. It's your life, not their's at stake. Take, Take, Take they have a fish on the line and they will reel in the MONEY..."SHOWME THE MONEY" Mr. Kustok if you really didn't do it, FIRE these lawyers, and hire someont that can prove it because of the facts not 2nd guessing. After all they couldn't defrnd you the first time...LOSERS, now they want your money to try and do it right the 2nd time... Ching Ching. I forgot your daughter has lots of money.

You don't have to worry about trying to make it to a neighbors house for help in those critical moments.

X Gov Ryan & Blago from Illinois,Read More One GOP the other Democrat, both served and serving time like Jessie Jackson Jr. in country club enviroments.

An if you say at X Gov Little Jim Thompson's Law firm than Jim's the bigger crook. Jim Thompson made a back door deal with Jerry Reinsdorf & Fast Eddie Einhorn that has cost the State of ILLINOIS tax payers, MILLIONS! It's ludicrous what little X Gov Jim Thompson gave away.

how long has this law been effect? I still see 3 out of 5 drivers still yakking or texting.
Mom April 11, 2014 at 07:51 am
I agree. Yesterday morning, I was driving down SW Highway from 111th towards Harlem Avenue, and theRead More male driver in the left hand lane had his face COMPLETELY DOWNWARD texting as he was approaching the curve in the road. I got up next to him and laid on my horn. He flipped me off and looked downward again. Hope he got to where he was going and didn't hurt or kill anyone along the way. Was sooo looking for an officer, but one nowhere to be found! I have two teenagers who are driving now and I make them leave their phones at home. Most people would argue that they need their phones in case something happened, but they are always with a friend who has a phone, so they are good. The ones who really irritate me are the highway drivers. Speeding to begin with but then texting also. We were driving home from out of state a few weekends ago and a truck driver was weaving all over the road. We finally got to a safe area where we could pass him and yes, you guessed it, texting! What is it going to take, other than a horrific accident, for these people to wake up?
Donna Thorpe April 11, 2014 at 07:54 am
I still see alot of drivers on cell phones along with the police officers. I have seen an officer onRead More his phone, then another driver on his n they get pulled over. How is that fair? Also, the women that wear head scarves have the phones tucked in and are talking. They have to take them out to disconnect or call someone. I'm not starting a prejudice policy, but if we can't drive with cell phones- then NO ONE can drive with them. Has to be fair for all.

Arthur Huff March 27, 2014 at 09:51 am
Deerfield, if it comes out that the union had a role in what happened in February being handled theRead More way it was then I'm right there with you. But we don't know that yet. All we know now is that the CTA handled it that way, we don't know why. For what it's worth, and I'm just pointing out facts for the sake of the discussion, in this crash and the one in New York it was a union official who told the press that the operator dozed off. Doesn't sound like they were trying to protect either of them, does it? In both of these cases they could just give us the standard "we are still trying to determine the cause blah blah blah" but in both cases they admitted right away that the driver was totally at fault. I'm not saying unions are perfect and don't obstruct weeding out bad employees, i.e teachers and tenure, but in this case we have no indication YET that it played a role.
Sue1 March 28, 2014 at 10:25 am
It would be interesting to get a copy of their contract. I would bet they have some sort ofRead More progressive discipline language in it, which would explain why she wasn't fired after the first incident.
