Eviction cases and municipal districts

Right now, there is a bit of a change going on in the Cook County eviction world.  There was a time where any case in Cook County could be brought in the First District downtown (ie. at the Daley Center).  What I believe was an improperly decided foreclosure case seems to suggest that eviction cases must be brought in the smallest judicial subdivision located nearest the property in question.  As a result, eviction attorneys have moved more and more to bringing their suburban cases in the local municipal district.  That is, an eviction in Arlington Heights that could have been brought in the 1st district downtown is now being pursued in the 3rd district courthouse in Rolling Meadows.

As a result, because of our present caseload and the proximity of the collar district courthouses to our office, we are now only accepting engagements to represent clients with issues arising in the First (Chicago at the Daley Center), Second (northern suburban cases at the Skokie courthouse), and third (northwest suburban cases at the Rolling Meadows courthouse) Districts of Cook County.
