HB 2330 – Public Act 93-0425

Sponsored by Representative Fritchey and Senator Delgado, House Bill 2330 created the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003, which fills two gaps in Illinois’ civil rights laws. First, it prohibits governmental policies that have a disparate impact against a racial group, regardless of intent, and allows aggrieved parties to challenges such policies in state or federal court. Second, it facilitates private enforcement of civil rights laws by allowing the award of attorney fees to parties who prevail in litigation brought under this new law.
