Chief Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court Thomas Kilbride and members of the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts were in Sycamore on Dec. 6 to present a forum on e-business standards and principles.
An order was entered by the Supreme Court of Illinois on Oct. 24 that approved standards and principles to maintain uniformity of electronic filing practices and procedures throughout the state of Illinois. Judges, circuit clerks and other members of the court from across the state attended the forum.
DeKalb County Circuit Clerk Maureen Josh welcomed the attendees and thanked Justice Kilbride for this long-awaited initiative.
“The circuit clerks of northeast Illinois are especially grateful to Justice Kilbride for his leadership in this important project,” she said. “We offer our complete cooperation and support for a successful implementation of e-filing in the Illinois courts.”
Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert, who attended the forum, added her support and appreciation.
“Justice Kilbride has embarked on an important step for the future of Illinois courts,” she said. “As case-loads continue to increase and financial resources continue to decrease, this initiative will be a positive move for the court system and those who use it.”
Forums also were held in Springfield and Carbondale.
