Reed Armstrong Associate Leslie Warren co-authored an article in the Spring 2012 edition of Illinois Lawyer Now, a publication of the Illinois State Bar Association. The article “No more pants on the ground in Collinsville: An equal protection review” discussed whether the City of Collinsville´s recently enacted “sagging pants” ordinance violated the U.S. Constitution´s Equal Protection Clause. The article concludes that if an individual was charged with violating the sagging pants ordinance, and then sued the City of Collinsville for violating his/her Equal Protection rights, the lawsuit would probably be unsuccessful because the Collinsville City Council did not enact the ordinance because of racial motivations.
