Judge to allow media access to juvenile proceedings

A judge who had earlier banned media from the courtroom has vacated the order.
McLean vacated his order, which had barred certain media from his courtroom. The decision came during a settlement conference with Moline Dispatch Publishing Co., which publishes the Dispatch and Rock Island Argus, WQAD-TV, Moline, and Lee Enterprises, the parent company of the Quad City Times.

The Judge's vacature was consistent with the sorry, contradictory state of the Juvenile Court Act as it now exists.
