GENERAL ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER No.: 2018-07 Preparation for multiple arrest incident

On the basis of recent public statements by local law enforcement officials, the Illinois
State Police, and a representative of persons planning acts of"civil disobedience" that would
obstruct or block traffic on Interstate Highways 90 and 94 (Dan Ryan Expressway) in the
vicinity of 79th Street in the city of Chicago on July 7, 2018; in anticipation that the court's usual
weekend operations may be inadequate for hearing the substantial increase in new cases resulting
from arrests arising from this incident; and in the interest of the fair and orderly administration of
justice for all concerned,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that, for the period July 7-8, 2018, the court shall operate pursuant
to the provisions of Cook Co. Cir. Ct. G.O. 18. l through 18.14 (G.O. 18) by preparing
accordingly for multiple arrests; and

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that all authority and duties assigned by G.O. 18 to the
"Presiding Judge" are hereby assigned to the Presiding Judge of the court's Pretrial Division.
Dated this 6th day of July, 2018.
