CHICAGO (AP) - The city of Chicago's law office says it doesn't expect a judge to rule today on Mayor Rahm Emanuel's request for an order forcing striking school teachers back to work.

A spokesman for the law department says a judge won't address the matter until later this week.

City attorneys asked a state court today to force Chicago Teachers Union members back into classrooms.

Among other arguments, their filing contends the strike is illegal because it endangers students' health and safety.

The union and school leaders seemed optimistic late last week that they would reach a resolution by today. But teachers uncomfortable with a tentative contract offer said yesterday they needed more time to review it.
