LITIGATION INSTITUTED BY T H E CITY OF CHICAGO(28) The City of Chicago has filed a quasi-criminal proceeding against the University for an alleged violation of the anti-smoke ordinance in the Municipal Code of Chicago. The violation is alleged to have occurred at 1911 West Roosevelt Road in Chicago where the Valley Outpost Clinic of the Medical Center campus is operated. Representatives of Chicago's Corporation Counsel's Office have indicated they view the proceeding as a test case to establish the City's regulatory jurisdiction over the University.
The University Counsel states that in his opinion the position of the City of Chicago is not well founded. At the December 19, 1973, meeting of the Board of Trustees, where the general subject was discussed, it was indicated that the general rule of law is that the University, as a State instrumentality performing a function of State government, is not subject to local ordinances and regulations and that, otherwise, a municipality could effectively limit the performance of University functions and programs.
The University Counsel recommends that he be authorized to take such steps as are necessary or appropriate, including the employment of special counsel, to represent the University and to protect its interests in the proceeding.
On motion of Mr. Swain, authority was given as recommended by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.
Hughes, Mr. Livingston, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none;
Sanathanan, C. K., Professor of Information Engineering, Chicago Circle campus, cancellation of sabbatical leave of absence for the fall quarter 1973-74, full pay.
