How Does The Illinois Circuit Court Work?

Illinois Circuit Courts are the state’s primary courts. Illinois has 23 judicial circuits, with one Circuit Court each. Six of the circuits cover one county, while the eighteen remaining circuits cover between two and twelve counties.

Illinois Circuit Courts are trial courts that hear all kinds of cases. Most cases begin at one of the state’s Circuit Courts and may be appealed to the Illinois Appellate Court or the Illinois Supreme Court. Note that where a Circuit Court judge pronounces a death sentence, the case may be appealed directly to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Illinois Circuit Courts are courts of original jurisdiction as the courts first hear cases originating from their respective judicial circuits. While lower than the Appellate Court and the Supreme Court, Circuit Courts have jurisdiction over all types of cases, including civil and criminal matters. These may include all juvenile, probate, traffic, domestic relations matters, and small claims up to $10,000. In addition to the aforementioned, Illinois Circuit Courts also can review administrative orders from some state agencies. However, Circuit Courts may not hear cases on the following:

  • Redistricting of the Illinois General Assembly
  • Suitability of the Illinois State Governor to serve or resume office

In Illinois, Circuit Courts also share jurisdiction with the Supreme Court on several cases that relating to:

  • Revenue
  • Mandamus
  • Prohibition
  • Habeas Corpus

Note, while the Circuit Court may hear any of the above case types, the Supreme Court may choose to apply its authority to these cases. In such instances, the Circuit Court immediately loses its jurisdiction.

 

Illinois Circuit Courts have two types of judges, including circuit judges and associate judges. A circuit judge’s term spans six years after an initial election from the judge’s county of residence, circuit, or from a sub-circuit within a circuit. The type of election required to elect a circuit judge depends on the kind of vacancy available. A circuit judge may hear any Circuit Court case and may contest a retention election for an additional six-year term.

 

An associate judge is not elected by a circuit, sub-circuit, or county. According to Supreme Court Rule 39, associate judges may only be appointed by Circuit Court judges, for four-year terms. Associate judges may hear any case, except a criminal case punishable by a prison sentence of at least one year. However, note that an associate judge may hear all cases if the judge obtains special permission from the Illinois Supreme Court.

All circuit judges are to elect a member as a Chief Circuit Court Judge. The Chief Circuit Court Judge can assign cases heard by the court to specialized or general divisions. The Chief Circuit Court Judge also has general administrative authority in the circuit of service. However, note that the Chief Circuit Judge’s authority is subject to the Supreme Court’s overall administrative authority.

The following are requirements to be met by prospective circuit and associate judges:

  • A resident of the circuit of election or appointment
  • Licensed to practice law in Illinois
  • Citizen of the United States

Information on Circuit Court cases is obtainable from the court that handled the case. These records are maintained and issued by the clerk in each of the state’s Circuit Courts. To request a court case record, send a written request to the Circuit Court that heard the case.

Ensure that the request includes exhaustive details about the desired records, such as the parties to the case, dates, offense, and other relevant information. Note that inspecting these records may be free of charge. However, interested persons are charged varying fees to obtain physical copies of the court records.

 

Case trajectories for matters heard by Circuit Courts vary. Several factors, such as the type of offense, parties involved, availability of evidence, and other facts, may affect the general timeline. In addition, the court’s caseload should also be considered. As such, Circuit Court cases may last as long as the court may require to reach a disposition.

 

Several counties may also provide online functions where interested persons may find Circuit Court records. For example, Cook County provides an online case search which allows access to dockets several types of cases. Interested persons may search by case number, name, and filing date.
