A mother settled her lawsuit against Cook County and Sheriff Tom Dart regarding a woman's right to breastfeed in public.

Natalie Petrovic said she was breastfeeding her daughter at the courthouse in Skokie last year when a sheriff's deputy told her she had to move to a bathroom.

Petrovic argued she could legally breast feed anywhere. Under the settlement, the sheriff has agreed to provide training to his employees and post information at county courthouses.
