This time, we’re concluding our three-week trip through the data for originating jurisdictions, looking at the Court’s criminal cases between 2010 and 2020.
For these years, Cook County accounted for 156 criminal cases. Will County was next, followed by Peoria, Du Page, Kane and Lake counties.
Several small counties made our second Table, producing between two and four criminal cases apiece. Interestingly, Madison and Sangamon counties, both of which tend to account for quite a few civil cases, produced only two criminal cases each over the past eleven years. An additional twenty jurisdictions produced one case apiece.
Join us back here next week as we continue our ongoing analysis of the Supreme Court’s decision making.
