December 02, 2019 6:11 PM | Carson Griffis (Administrator)

On November 25, 2019, The Illinois Supreme Court issued an order permitting the use of electronic devices during oral argument under limited circumstances.  The order allows counsel or litigants to use electronic devices, including laptops, tablets, or cell phones, for referencing notes, taking notes, or searching the internet during oral argument.  

Electronic devices may not be used for posting on social media, texting, emailing, phone calls, recording oral arguments, or taking pictures, and spectators are still prohibited from using electronic devices.  Those intending to use electronic devices must give the clerk of the Court at least seven days' notice.   

The order can be found here.
