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.
