The U.S. Senate has confirmed the appointment of a federal magistrate from southern Indiana to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate voted 60-31 Monday to confirmed Doris L. Pryor. Since March 2018, Pryor has served as magistrate judge for the Southern District of Indiana. Before that, she served as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Indiana. Republican Sen. Todd Young of Indiana says Pryor “is a public servant of the highest caliber.” She will be the first Black from Indiana ever to serve on the 7th Circuit, which covers Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.

Authorities say a car has gone out of control and slammed into a suburban Chicago restaurant, sending a family of four to a hospital. They say the crash occurred shortly after 4 p.m. Monday at a Culver’s restaurant in Morton Grove. They say the car went across a parkway and a drive-through lane and slammed into a seating area where the family was dining. Firefighters say members of the family suffered minor injuries. It's not clear what caused the car to careen out of control. Police say an elderly man was driving the car.

The hospitals in Indiana’s largest health system and in its most populous county say they've begun visitor restrictions because of a rise in reported cases of flu and other respiratory viruses. The restrictions will go into effect by Tuesday at all IU Health hospitals. They began Monday at all hospitals in Marion County, home to Indianapolis. The IU Health restrictions include only immediate family, only two at a time and no visitors under age 18 except parents or guardians and none who have flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms. Also, masking is required. Similar restrictions are in place at all Marion County hospitals.
