Chicago nightclub stampede ruling overturned

FILE - In this Feb. 1, 2004 file photo, Calvin Hollins Jr., co-owner of the E2 nightclub on Chicago's South Side where 21 people were killed during a stampede in 2003, speaks with reporters outside Cook County Housing Court in Chicago. In a ruling Thursday, April 4, 2013, the Illinois Supreme Court reversed an appellate court's decision tossing the guilty verdicts and vacating the sentences of Hollins and co-owner Dwain Kyles. Hollins and Kyles were convicted in 2009 and sentenced to two years for violating a judge's order to close the second floor of the club before the stampede. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)
