DURGINS v. CITY OF E. ST. LOUIS, 00-3271, 00-3486

Illinois permits the joinder of 42 USC 1983 claims with administrative-review actions, and applies the doctrine of merger and bar, thus an administrative-review action forecloses any later 1983 action in federal court arising out of the same transaction.
