This week, we’re wrapping up our three-week series on the geographical origins of the Court’s docket by reviewing the data for the years 2010 through 2020.
Between 2010 and 2020, the Court decided 150 civil cases which began in Cook County (once again, Cook is removed from the Table for readability). There was a three-way tie for second between Du Page, Lake and Sangamon County. Once again, Madison County was high on the list, as were Kane and Champaign County. Several administrative bodies were high on the list as well, including the Department of Revenue, the Workers Compensation Commission and the Commerce Commission.
In the second table, we report the next eighteen jurisdictions on our list, all accounting for either two or three cases each. An additional 49 jurisdictions produced one case apiece.
Join us back here next time as we review the criminal data for the past eleven years.
