St. Clair County, Illinois, named after Arthur St. Clair, was the first county in the state of Illinois. The county actually preceded the existence of the state itself, as it was part of the original Northwest Territory. The city of Belleville is the county seat of St. Clair County.
In the News: Recently, a mother of a St. Clair County high school football player sued the school district, football coaches and various administrators for negligently causing her son injuries. The lawsuit claims the coaching staff’s win-at-all-cost mentality caused them to ignore her son’s complaints of headaches and other concussion related symptoms. The mother claims that her son was forced to play despite an obvious head injury that caused him to collapse during a game with a ruptured blood vessel in his brain. The St. Clair County mother alleges that the coaches ridiculed those players who were injured, creating a tendency in the team to hide injuries from the coaching staff.
