NorthShore charitable foundation can't sue Niles high schools over wasted $1.3 million clinics grant
A charitable fund associated with Evanston-based NorthShore University Health System will not be able to continue much of its legal action against Niles’ high school district over the district’s decision to close some health clinics in the suburban high schools, after a Cook County judge declared the foundation should have sued someone else over the alleged waste of the foundation’s grant to fund the clinics.
