A program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale later this month in honor of United Nations Day will examine international justice models.

"The International Criminal Court and Other Models for International Justice," is set for 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 22, in the Hiram H. Lesar Law Building Courtroom, room 109, at the SIU School of Law.

The program is free and open to the public. Cindy Buys, an associate professor and director of international law programs at the SIU School of Law, will be the moderator. A reception follows the program in the law school's formal lounge.

Defendants involved in the production of former Poison frontman Brett Michael's "Rock of Love Bus" series televised on MTV and VH-1 paid William and Colleen Wiley $16 million in a recent St. Clair County settlement.

The case arose from a Sept. 26, 2008, accident involving a crew member of 51 Minds Entertainment LLC, a Hollywood production company, who fell asleep and crossed the southbound lanes of I-57 near West Frankfurt.

The accident left the Wileys, of Tallahasse, Fla., seriously injured. The driver of the bus did not possess a valid driver's license and tested positive for marijuana use after the accident.

The Wileys were represented by Kevin L. Fritz, Patrick E. Foppe and Lashly & Baer, P.C., which has offices in St. Louis and Belleville.
