In this photo taken Friday, Aug. 26, 2011, in Chicago, Lenil Colbert, a plantiff in a class action lawsuit involving housing for the disabled speaks during an interview. A settlement has been reached in the last of a trio of class-action lawsuits involving the rights of disabled Illinois residents living in large institutions. The settlement paves the way for thousands of people to get help moving from Cook County nursing homes to houses and apartments.  Since the case was filed, Colbert has moved out of the nursing home and now lives in his own apartment.
