The Illes were never the most talented children’s book author in the country.
But for decades, they had the kind of creative vision that helped create a cottage industry for the kind, edgy, and sometimes violent tales that would become so iconic in the United States.
And now they’re about to be auctioned off.
The Illes, who are buried in an old cemetery, had a reputation as a comic book and book-themed bookstore in the early 1980s.
But in recent years, they have been the subject of a string of bad publicity and public shaming, including a series of lawsuits, a wrongful death lawsuit, and accusations that they discriminated against minority children and minorities by hiring only white authors.
The case that has made the biggest headlines is the 2011 lawsuit filed by three children who say the Illes refused to hire their mother, Elizabeth L. Koehler, or their aunt, Patricia Koehl, for their first book of fiction in the late 1990s because of their race.
The children say they were forced to write the stories about themselves because they were being bullied by white classmates and classmates of different races.
In the lawsuit, the children claim the illes discriminated against their race and gender because they weren’t hired as authors for the same reason they were not hired for other kinds of books.
But a federal judge has ruled that the children are not entitled to any compensation from the estate of the illest man in America, and the lawsuit is on hold pending the outcome of the ongoing trial.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the estate said it would be “unfair and inappropriate” for the heirs to sue the estate because it “has not received any payment from the ill family and the ill estate is currently in the midst of a trial.”
But the spokesperson added that the ill heirs have made “a concerted effort to work with the estate to find a solution.”
The Ills, who owned the title company and a bookstore before they sold it in 2013, were one of the country’s first successful children’s publishers.
They sold children’s books, children’s toys, and toys for families with disabilities for years, with titles like the famous “Puppy and the Bambi,” and “The Little White Dog.”
The Ills had a number of imprints that made it easier for children to get books into their hands: The Children’s Book Publishing Company, The Ill-Matter Publishing Company and The Illusions Publishing Company.
But they also sold childrens books at local bookstores and other retailers.
The children sued in 2012, saying that they were subjected to “unlawful racial and gender discrimination,” and that the company discriminated against them because of the color of their skin.
The lawsuit was settled in 2015, but the Ills have been trying to sell the property ever since.
The estate declined to comment on the lawsuit.
In recent years the estate has filed at least four lawsuits seeking money from the heirs.
But the latest lawsuit is among the biggest and the most complicated.
In court documents filed last month, the estate says it is seeking compensation from all of the Ill’s heirs and is seeking “an award of all profits and all profits attributable to the sale of the property” to “funds be used for medical expenses and other personal expenses.”
In addition to being a textbook publisher, the Ill has also published many children’s series, including the popular “Bambi” series, which was a smash hit with children.
But it also sold toys for children and other toys for adults.
The Ill has published dozens of children’s titles, including “Battlestar Galactica,” “The Book Thief,” “My Little Pony,” “Tales of the Arabian Nights,” and more.
The estate is also seeking a payment from “all of the heirs” for “the sale of books, music, television shows, films, and other items, including artwork, in excess of $25,000.”
The family has also sued the Ill for copyright infringement.
In a complaint filed in July, the family said that the Ill had “created a pervasive, pervasive, and discriminatory culture of racial and sexual harassment” at the company.
The family also said that Ills CEO Michael D. Ill had promoted a “system of sexual harassment and assault” at its books and other publishing businesses, and that Ill’s “policy of hiring only White authors and retaining only White directors” made it difficult for children of color to be hired for books.
The family also alleged that Ill had made it “impossible for the Ill family to participate in any kind of diversity or inclusion program or social event” at their stores.
The court filings also note that the estate is seeking damages for “all economic losses” from the Ill, including an amount equal to “all income and expenses incurred by the estate
