Illinois Supreme Court Delays Implementation of New Appellate Court Districts

June 08, 2021 4:03 PM | Carson Griffis (Administrator)

On June 7, 2021, the Illinois Supreme Court entered an order delaying the transition to the new appellate court district boundaries recently enacted by the Illinois General Assembly.  Public Act 102-0011, which took effect on June 4, 2021, updated the boundaries of the Second through Fifth Districts of the Illinois Appellate Court.

In response, the Illinois Supreme Court ordered that "[a]ppeals and other matters shall continue to be filed in the judicial districts as they existed on June 3, 2021, until further order of the Court."  The court explained that the delay was necessary to faithfully execute the law's changes while ensuring continued access to justice and an orderly transition to the new boundaries. 

The text of Public Act 102-0011 may be found here.  A copy of the Illinois Supreme Court's order may be found here.
