Suit alleges 'kangaroo court' juvenile parole system
(MCT) — A proposed class-action lawsuit filed this week in federal court alleges that hundreds of Illinois youth are imprisoned each year on often technical parole violations and held unconstitutionally through a “kangaroo court” system that restricts access to an attorney.
The suit, filed Tuesday by the Northwestern University School of Law’s MacArthur Justice Center on behalf of a teen identified by initials M.H., names Gov. Pat Quinn and Adam Monreal, the chairman of the Illinois Prisoner Review Board.
