CHICAGO -- A new lawsuit filed on behalf of a homeless man in Chicago will be the first to test a new state law.
The Bill of Rights for the Homeless Act was passed in 2013.
It maintains that a homeless person's property out on the street has the same right to privacy as property in a permanent home.
According to The Sun-Times, the Coalition for the Homeless filed the lawsuit against the city. They represent Robert Henderson.
His belongings, including medication and identification, were thrown away by city workers in November
