In a suspected legal first, a Chicago jury awarded $2 million to a woman who claimed her prospective in-laws lied to her about their son’s health. The parents of Albert Dilling said he suffered from Lyme disease and heavy metal poisoning. In fact, he had AIDS. Attorney Hall Adams III argued that her Jane Doe client, who became infected with HIV, could have received treatment three years earlier had she known she was at risk. The jury’s decision left the executive director of AIDS Legal Council of Chicago shaking her head: “Illinois has one of the strongest AIDS Confidentiality Acts in the country … If [the fiance's mother] had in fact released her son’s HIV status, he would have been able to sue her,” said Ann Hilton Fisher … State public schools have no obligation to include home-schooled athletes on their teams, the Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled. A three-judge panel of the court rejected claims of equal protection violations and religious discrimination … The only person ever convicted for Sept. 11 crimes won a retrial Thursday. Mounir el Motassadeq had not received a fair trial, ruled Germany’s Federal Court of Justice, because prosecutors had denied access to a defense witness held by the United States. The same witness has been requested by the defense for Zacarias Moussaoui … A movie star’s presidential bid won Supreme Court clearance this week. There had been some doubt whether the candidate was a “natural born” citizen, as required for presidential office. But the high court found that the candidate was indeed eligible because his father had been a citizen. That’s right. The Philippine Supreme Court voted 8-5 to permit celebrity Fernando Poe to run for that nation’s presidency. Who did you think? – Lori Patel
