Judge's ruling means no disruption of state football finals

Updated 11/20/2018 5:58 PM

A Cook County Circuit judge has denied an emergency motion order to hear the Simeon Alumni Association's case against the Illinois High School Association.

A lawsuit filed last week claimed that a Nazareth parent dressed as a football official, stood on the sideline and influenced the referees in the Roadrunners' 34-27 win against the Wolverines in the Class 7A state quarterfinals on Nov. 10. Nazareth is scheduled to play St. Charles North for the Class 7A state title on Saturday.

"The judge believed there wasn't an emergency," Shay Allen, an attorney for the Simeon alumni said.

That means there is no chance that the lawsuit will hold up this weekend's state football finals in Champaign.
