Winter evictions are slowed in Cook County

Periodically, I like to do a little anecdotal sample of cases to see where the Sheriff is running when it comes to Cook County evictions.  Based on a VERY unscientific poll, it seems that evictions from early December are now being processed.  That means we have about a 12 week backlog in the system.  Keep in mind that we had a few weeks there (on top of the moratorium) where the weather was just so cold that there were no evictions at all.  Remember, your mileage may vary and past performance is no guarantee of future results!  Good luck out there landlords.  Hopefully the mild weather forecast for the next 10 days will allow the Sheriff to catch up on some of that backlog.
