The Circuit Court of Cook County reversed a cease-and-desist order
from the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation, which
sought to prevent the use of CNE titles due to possible confusion
with the title of professional engineer.

A laudable action indeed. Anyone who would possibly confuse the two titles
is too stupid to have (or employ) either.

As for it going to the supreme court: The attempt may be made, but I'm sure
the supremes will consider their docket far too crowded for such a
pathetically trivial issue as this one is.

Have fun,

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
Opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
