The director wants the 7th Circ. To review the inmates’ “Empire” costume

Law360 (June 25, 2021, 9:30 p.m. EDT) – Director of an Illinois juvenile detention center asked federal court to allow Seventh Circuit to determine whether it owed a fiduciary duty to a class of inmates who say they were disrupted at the Twentieth Century Fox filmed portions of the “Empire” show at the center.

Superintendent Leonard Dixon and Cook County, Illinois argued that the lower court erred in finding Dixon owed a fiduciary duty to inmates and in determining that he was not entitled to the sovereign immunity. They asked the court to certify two issues related to these two issues to the court of appeal.
