TUESDAY, JULY 23, 2002

A federal judge on Monday ordered the University of Illinois to pay $5,000 for five opponents of the school's Chief Illiniwek mascot.

The opponents asked for $1,000 to make a symbolic point about a school policy that forbade them from talking to athlete recruits about the mascot. The policy is no longer in place.
