She joins Insight to explain why she decided to file her lawsuit and challenged the CTA all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Joining her is F. Vincent Vernuccio with the Makinac Center for Public Policy, a libertarian think tank that advocates for free market approaches to education and other issues.
