The ACLU of Illinois and the Women’s Rights Project of the ACLU represent Jennifer Panattoni, a police officer working for the Frankfort Police Department (FPD), who was denied reasonable accommodations and forced onto leave because she was pregnant.
One of the main ways the ACLU of Illinois works to protect civil liberties and civil rights is through litigation. Litigation remains one of the fundamental tools with which our adept legal team fights for equality and civil rights throughout the state. This section of our website documents the cases we’re working on now and those we’ve handled in recent years.
