GENERAL ORDER 09-23

RE: APPELLATE STATUS CALENDAR

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY AND UNTIL FURTHER ORDER OF THIS COURT,

1. Illinois Supreme Court Rule 306A requires appellants to serve copies of all notices of appeal on the trial judge. Those copies shall be served on the trial judge care of the Presiding Judge’s Office, 2245 West Ogden Avenue, 8th Floor, Chicago, IL 60612. Copies of notices of appeal must be file stamped. In addition to notices of appeal, this paragraph applies to all other filings related to an appeal that Illinois Supreme Court Rules require to be served on the trial judge.

2. The status hearings required by Illinois Supreme Court Rule 306A(d) shall be heard by a single Child Protection Judge on a designated Appellate Status Calendar. No 306A(d) status hearings will occur on the individual geographic calendars. The Appellate Status Calendar will only hear 306A(d) status hearings and motions relating to those hearings. The geographic calendars will continue to hear all matters relating to the case other than those relating to Illinois Supreme Court Rule 306A.

3. The Presiding Judge will announce the dates, times, and locations of the Appellate Status Calendar. These dates, times, and locations will be posted in the Clerk’s Office and other locations in the Juvenile Court Facility.

4. At the time the notice of appeal is filed the Clerk of the Circuit Court shall assign the initial date on which the case will be heard on the Appellate Status Calendar and will indicate that date on the notice of appeal.

This General Order supercedes Child Protection Division General Order 05-26.

This order is entered this date, March 19, 2009, and shall be spread of record and published.
