Remedies that are often ordered in breach of contract cases

Most any Chicago company will have their customer sign a contract before agreeing to perform any services for them. They outline what they've been contracted to do and outline what happens if outside factors such as time delays or financial issues make it impossible for either party to uphold their responsibilities.

Why are police encounters more dangerous for disabled people?

A study from Cornell University in 2017 found what many people already knew -- that people who have disabilities are more likely to find themselves under arrest than those who don't have a physical or mental disability -- 44 percent more likely. According to a report published the previous year by the Ruderman Family Foundation, up to a half of all instances in which force is used by police involve disabled people, and "up to half of all people killed by the police in the United States are disabled."

There's a fine line between reasonable and excessive police force

Everyone in Illinois, even someone suspected of having committed a crime, has a constitutional right to not be treated with excessive force. This protection is afforded to all Americans under the reasonable search and seizure guidelines of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The Eighth Amendment also prohibits individuals from being subject to cruel and unusual punishment.
