BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A judge in southwestern Illinois is considering an AIDS service organization's challenge of a city's decision to bar the group from running a needle-exchange program because of a zoning issue.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that St. Clair County Circuit Judge Robert Haida took the matter under advisement after a hearing Monday. The judge will issue a written ruling.

The city sued in February, believing Bethany Place's needle-exchange program violates the type of operations allowed for that site under the city's zoning codes.

Bethany Place responded last month, arguing the city waited too long to complain.

The organization calls the city's move unfair and prejudicial to clients served by the program.

St. Louis judge suspended without pay

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Missouri Supreme Court has suspended a St. Louis judge who let a clerk handle hundreds of cases while she was on vacation.

<br><br>

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the unpaid six-month suspension of Associate Circuit Judge Barbara Peebles was ordered Friday. A one-page order says the court found Peebles "engaged in misconduct" but doesn't go into specifics.

<br><br>

Peebles has been suspended with pay since August, when a judicial disciplinary commission voted to recommend her removal. A report by the Commission on Retirement, Removal and Discipline found Pebbles abdicated her duties to clerks, showed up late to work and tried to cover up the destruction or removal of a document.

<br><br>

Peebles had been fighting the dismissal recommendation. It's been 20 years since a Missouri judge was removed from office.

Judge tosses wrongful-death suit against ministry

WATERLOO, Ill. (AP) - A judge for the second time in four months has thrown out a lawsuit blaming a televangelist for a former employee's killings of his wife and two sons.

Associate Judge Richard Aguirre dismissed the suit Wednesday in Monroe County. Aguirre ruled that he can't see any way how Missouri-based Joyce Meyer Ministries could have foreseen that Christopher Coleman would kill his family.

Christopher Coleman killed his wife and sons at the Coleman's Columbia home in 2009. He was serving as Meyer's security chief. He's now serving a life sentence.

The lawsuit by Sheri Coleman's family says the ministry knew Christopher Coleman was unhappily married, did nothing to investigate threats against Coleman's family and didn't warn Sheri Coleman.

Attorneys behind the suit say they'll appeal.
