John Williams checked in first with WGN-TV Meteorologist Tom Skilling on the thunderstorm warning that later expired. Then, Institute for Justice Attorney Diana Simpson describes Veronica Walker-Davis’s case against the city of Chicago, after her car was impounded through no fault of her own. Listeners say whom they believe is to blame in the case.
