GARCIA v. VILL. OF MOUNT PROSPECT, 02-2869

The Illinois circuit court's administrative review of the Police Pension Board's denial of duty-related benefits to a former officer has a res judicata effect on his federal civil-rights claims. Because he failed to join his civil-rights claims with his administrative appeal, his action was properly dismissed.
