On June 15, 2016 Howard Ankin argued before the Illinois Appellate Court in Smart v. the Commission.
Justice WELCH delivered the opinion of the court:
The Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University (hereinafter “SIU”) appeals from a decision of a three-member panel of the Illinois Human Rights Commission (hereinafter “HRC”), entered March 30, 1987, finding that SIU had discriminated against complaints, Charles Western, in its hiring practices. Appellee, Illinois Human Rights Commission, has filed a motion to dismiss the appeal for lack of appellate jurisdiction, citing in support thereof the recent supreme court opinion in Castaneda v. The Illinois Human Rights Commission (1989), 132 Ill.2d 304, 138 Ill.Dec. 270, 547 N.E.2d 437.
