Full story here, key quote follows:  

"Northwestern senior cornerback Justan Vaughn doesn't like riding  Chicago's 
elevated train system, but even he was looking forward to  traveling by railway 
to Saturday's game against Illinois at Wrigley  Field.  But Vaughn and his 
teammates won't have that  chance. The CTA and Northwestern lawyers weren't able 
to resolve  liability issues in time, and the Wildcats announced Tuesday they 
will  not be taking the "El" to Thursday's practice and Saturday's game in  

So let me get this straight.  Jansen is the CTA's general counsel.  Sidley 
represents Northwestern.  And the two "sides" can't figure out a way to put a 
bunch of college kids on a train from Evanston to Wrigley?!  Let me tell you, if 
this matter were being handled by Winick's new firm, we wouldn't be reading 
embarrassing stories like this ...

That is all.
