Mar 24-Apr 15
        AMENDED
        GENERAL ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 20-2
        EMERGENCY PROCEDURES FOR MOTION SECTION
In light of Circuit Court General Administrative Order 2020-1, and due to the very high volume of cases heard by the Motion Judges in the Law Division Motion Section, and due to the scheduling difficulties and multiple court calls which would result from rescheduling the cases for a short period of time,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
CASE MANAGEMENT DATES: All cases set by order on the Motion Calls will be automatically reset for approximately eight (8) weeks (56 days) from the current date in the same rooms. This is to ensure that cases remain on their currently set business days of the week. There will be a calendar of future reset dates and times posted on the Law Division, Motion Section website. All motions scheduled on the Motion Calls will be stricken and will need to be rescheduled when court operations resume.
DEADLINES: All discovery deadlines, completion dates, and/or filing dates, currently contained in the existing case management orders, will be automatically extended to the future 8-week dates. New dates for those activities will be set in new case management orders. Motions to compel or extend discovery dates are not valid emergency motions, and must not be filed.
EMERGENCY MOTIONS: (As amended March 23, 2020, pursuant to General Administrative Order 20-3) An Emergency Judge will be available electronically from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, for presentation of "Valid" emergency motions only, such as emergencies adding parties or filing pleadings prior to the expiration of a statute of limitations, and/or orders of protection for preservation of evidence. Motions which do not constitute "Valid" emergencies will be stricken. Routine motions are not valid emergency motions but will be included in our settlement and dismissal procedures of 20-2.
PARTIES SHOULD E-MAIL:
Judge Kathy M. Flangan at (kathy.flanagan@cookcountyil.gov) for cases pending in rooms 2202 Cal. B, 2204 Cal. Z, 2206 Cal. A, 2208 Cal. R and 2210 Cal. E

Upon receipt of the E-Mail the Emergency Judge will review the motion to determine if it is a "Valid" emergency. If the motion is not a "Valid" emergency, the Emergency Judge will respond as such via E-Mail.
If the motion is a "Valid" emergency, the Emergency Judge will rule on the motion as presented or schedule a hearing using some other means (i.e. conference call, Skype or Zoom) if necessary, and enter the appropriate order thereafter.
Based upon volume and changes in circumstances, these procedures may change and any such changes will be posted on the Law Division, Motion Section website.
— Please note that any party who does not have the ability to present an emergency motion electronically may call Motion Section Coordinator, Brian Robbin at 312-813-1457 for further instruction.
FILING OF DOCUMENTS: If the filing of a document or pleading requires a court order, and is a valid emergency (i.e., statute of limitations expiring), please present an emergency motion to the emergency judge.
If a court order cannot be obtained, efile the document or pleading, without the order. The court order granting leave to do so can be obtained when court operations resume. Any such order will be entered retroactive to the date of the filing of the pleading or document. All other orders granting leave to file documents or pleadings, which are not valid emergencies, will be entered when court operations resume. Please note: When in doubt, just file the document or pleading.
If the filing of a document requires the signature of a party, and the signature is unable to be obtained, efile the document or pleading, and the signed document or pleading can be filed when court operations resume.
DEPOSITION OBJECTIONS: If any depositions are conducted by agreement, and objections arise, the objections will be noted on the record, and the testimony will be taken over the objection, in accordance with Supreme Court Rule 206(f). A witness will not be instructed not to answer a question, unless the answer would violate a statutory or common law privilege. Judges will not be available to rule on deposition objections.
SETTLEMENT AND DISMISSAL ORDERS: Agreed orders for dismissals by settlement, voluntary dismissals (with no dispositive motions pending), petitions for approval of settlements, agreed motions for good faith findings and dismissals of some (not all) defendants, can be emailed to either of the following:
Judge Kathy M. Flanagan   Kathy.flanagan@cookcountyil.gov (Even #s)
Judge Allen P. Walker      ccc.lawcalendarz@cookcountyil.gov (Odd #s)

INFORMATION CONTACT: Further information and questions on these procedures can be obtained by contacting Motion Section Coordinator Brian Robin at (312) 813-1457. Voice mail messages will be checked regularly, and returned with the requested information at the earliest possible time.
Nothing in this order shall affect the authority of this Court or the authority of the Motion Judges to modify this order as developments warrant or to exercise its discretion when necessary.

SUPERVISING JUDGE
        LAW DIVISION MOTION SECTION
        NOTICE ON TEMPORARY PROCEDURES
        FOR SERVICE OF PROCESS
Based upon the current situation where service of process in "non-essential" civil cases cannot be obtained through the Office of the Sheriff of Cook County, due to limitations
placed upon court services as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak,
All attorneys shall continue to present motions for appointment of Special Process Servers, or motions for service by special order of court, as "routine" motions. Any such motion shall set forth the limitations present in each case (e.g., inability to obtain service through the Sheriff and/or Special Process Servers, litigant avoiding service, litigant residing in gated community or building with a locked lobby, etc.) and identify the person or entity (with proper identification number) to be appointed, and/or means of service requested. The order shall contain the same information.
These motions shall be presented to the Emergency Motion Judges as designated in Law Division General Administrative Order 20-2 and 20-3.
This temporary procedure shall remain in full force and effect, until such time as court resumes normal operations.
Dated March 25, 2020.
Mar 27-Apr 17
        NOTICE
Effective January 6, 2020, all cases filed in 2017 and all prior years, shall be designated for "Focused Case Management," as per Law Division Administrative Order-Motion Section 10-2.
Focused cases shall appear for case management before the respective motion judges every thirty (30) days, until all aspects of the case are completed, in accordance with the provisions of Administrative Order 10-2(B)(2) through (8).

        NOTICE
Emergency motions are to be signed up between 8:45 AM and 9:00 AM by the responsible attorney. They are heard at 9:15 AM. All responsible attorneys are to be present at that time. The motion must be a true emergency, or it will not be heard, and will have to be spindled on the regular motion call. As a general rule, an emergency is some circumstance which could lead to irreparable damage to a party if relief is not obtained prior to the time a party can be heard on the court's regular motion call. Motions to extend or compel discovery are not ordinarily emergencies.
        NOTICE
The service requirement for ALL motions is as follows: 5 FULL days by mail, NOT including Sundays or holidays, 3 days by hand delivery and 2 FULL days by fax. Fax service is NOT valid until 9:00 AM the next day.

        NOTICE
        Changes to Illinois
        Supreme Court Rule 707:
        Pro Hac Vice Admittance
On July 1, 2013, Amended Illinois Supreme Court Rule 707 went into effect. The new version of Rule 707 eliminates all previous procedures for pro hac vice admittance, such that out-of-state attorneys can no longer petition the court to be admitted.
Under the new rule, an out-of-state attorney must file a statement with the Administrator of the ARDC and pay a fee of $250.00 per proceeding in which he/she seeks admittance.
According to subsection (i), "the permission to practice law shall extend throughout the out-of-state attorney's practice in the proceeding unless earlier terminated." Subsection (i) further states that the permission to practice may be terminated by the Illinois Supreme Court, the Chief Judge of any circuit court, the ARDC Administrator, or the court in which the proceeding is pending. Please see subsection (i), subparagraphs (1) through (7), for the grounds for termination.
Therefore, as of July 1, 2013, no further petitions or orders for admission pro hac vice will be entered by the court.
