The Sun-Times reports that Chicago's enforcement of curfew has been temporarily suspended, because of problems with Indiana's laws. The 7th US Circuit Court ruled that Indiana does not give enough protection to minors who need to be out after hours, and since Chicago is part of the 7th Circuit, its laws need to be changed as well. So all you minors, this is your chance to stay out after 10:30 on weeknights (11:30 on weekends)!
