Picket of Judge Hubert WillToday in League HistoryMay 7, 1984—The League pickets Judge Hubert Will for his ruling invalidating Illinois’ Parental Notification law. The Chicago Sun-Times covers the story, noting that the group carried a “black robed judicial effigy” as part of the protest. After the protest, League Director Joe Scheidler hand-delivers a letter to Will’s staff accusing him of betraying the public trust. Even his staff is shocked to discover the horrible magnitude of their boss’s ruling: that now a child can undergo dangerous surgery without her parent’s knowledge.
