Chicago City Hall

Chicago, IL: (Mar-21-07) A long standing legal battle ensued for nearly forty years to end political hiring at City Hall. A federal judge announced a settlement on March 21, 2007. In the settlement reached, the City of Chicago has agreed to establish a $12 million fund to be paid out to individuals who allege they have been discriminated against in the hiring process between the year 2000 and the date of the final settlement order. The maximum award would be $100,000. Under the agreement, the city will be able to ask a judge to terminate the consent decree if they can prove adequate procedures are in place to prevent political hiring from happening in the future.
