First District of the Illinois Appellate Court Updates Local Rules

June 02, 2021 6:46 AM | Carson Griffis (Administrator)

On May 5, 2021, the Illinois Appellate Court, First District, adopted new local rules, to take effect on July 1, 2021. This represents the court’s first revision to the rules since 2008 and reflects, among other things, the court’s transition to electronic practice.

This long-anticipated revision results from the significant efforts of Presiding Justice Mathias Delort, Justice David Ellis and Presiding Justice Carl Walker. The Rules Committee’s work was furthered by its consultation with the Executive Committee, the other justices of the First District, Clerk Thomas Palella, Deputy Clerk Tina Schillaci, and Appellate Attorney Julia Maness.

The ALA remains grateful to the Rules Committee for the opportunity to provide input and looks forward to the implementation of the new rules.
