1. This order applies to and clarifies all prior visitation order during the current reduction of Court operations from March 17, 2020 to April 16, 2020 pursuant to General Administrative Order No. 2020-01.

Specifically, a guardian or temporary custodian may suspend any and all visits if the guardian or temporary custodian believes the location or visit itself would put the minor a risk;

If the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County chooses to amend the terms of General Administrative 2020-1, including but not limited to the period of time of reduction of court operations, this Standing Order is subject to change.

MOTIONS OF COURSE: Motions of Course, Opening & Closing of Decedent Estates, Application for Letters and Proof of Heirship, shall be heard at 10:00 a.m. daily. If heirship is extensive, a courtesy copy is required along with a copy of the Will if applicable. Notice to all parties must be given in accordance with the Illinois Supreme and Circuit Court Rules. A Courtesy Copy of all motions shall be delivered or faxed to chambers no later than 4:30 p.m. on the second business day preceding the motion. Courtesy Copies attempted to be delivered after 4:30 p.m. (regardless of the hearing date of the motion) will not be accepted. No filing in excess of fifteen (15) pages should be faxed to chambers. In the event that the motion is a contested matter that will require a briefing schedule, moving counsel need only supply a courtesy copy of the motion (without supporting memorandum) in advance of the initial presentment date.
Motions concerning discovery issues shall be accompanied by a copy of the most recent discovery or case management order entered in the case. Such motions must also contain a factual statement as to the efforts undertaken by counsel pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 201(k). Failure of moving counsel to include the Rule 201(k) factual statement constitutes grounds for striking the motion.
Agreed orders will be accepted at the beginning of the call. The Court will not accept as "agreed" orders any order that changes a hearing date on fully-briefed motions or trial dates.
PETITIONS TO SETTLE CAUSE OF ACTION:
Courtesy copies of Petitions and supporting documents, including all costs, shall be provided to the Court no less than two business days prior to the matter being presented.
EMERGENCY MOTIONS: Matters determined to require emergency scheduling will be heard as add-ons on the 11:00 a.m. motion call. A courtesy copy of the motion marked "EMERGENCY MOTION" that shall include a factual basis stating the nature of the emergency and all supporting documents must be delivered to chambers no later than 4:00 p.m. on the day preceding presentment. Counsel should be aware that true emergencies are rare and that if, upon initial presentment in court it is determined that the matter presented is not a true emergency, counsel may be directed to place the matter on the Court's regular motion call.
SET CALL: The Set Call consists of contested matters and Final Pretrial Conferences.
Contested matters set by the Court shall be heard daily beginning at 11:00 a.m. Please note that there is a fifteen (15) page [standard margins, double-spaced] limit on all supporting and response briefs. There is a ten (10) page [standard margins, double-spaced] limit on all reply briefs.
Motions for leave to file oversize briefs are strongly discouraged. No filing in excess of fifteen (15) pages should be faxed to chambers. For motions to dismiss amended complaints, the movant must provide the court with courtesy copies of the prior complaint and a black-line version of the amended complaint. On the status date following completion of briefing, a hearing date will be set. No hearing dates will be set unless the Court has been provided with courtesy copies of all relevant pleadings.
SETTLEMENT CONFERENCES: Settlement Conferences are held by appointment and only upon agreement by all parties. Conferences should be scheduled by contacting Judge Malone's chambers or at the request of all parties at a previously scheduled court hearing. Counsel should be prepared to provide several dates upon which the parties are available to facilitate the scheduling process. No later than two days prior to the conference, the parties must submit to the Court, with copies to all other parties, a Pretrial Memorandum including the main points (legal and factual) at issue in the case; the bases for relief sought and the status of settlement negotiations. The Pretrial Memorandum should also include any other information that the parties, after consultation and agreement, believe would assist the Court in resolving the matter.
COURT REPORTERS: Counsel should be aware that there are no official court reporters assigned to Probate Division Decedent Estate courtrooms. Any party desiring a transcript of proceedings of any matter heard on Calendar 7 is responsible for providing a private court reporter.
EXHIBIT A: When petitioning to open an estate with a will, Exhibit A attached to the petition must be correct. It must list each heir and each legatee. If an heir is a legatee, only list the name once and denote "Heir/Legatee". If the will pours over into a trust, the trust is a legatee and must be listed on Exhibit A.
