Letter from Chief Judge Raymond A. Cavanaugh

On behalf of the judges and support staff, I would like to welcome you to the website of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Courts of the State of Illinois. Our goal is to provide ready access to accurate information about our system of justice and our circuit courts that you, as a litigant, as an attorney, or as a member of the general public, may wish to view. Thanks to our automation technicians this website and links are constantly being revised and improved. We are, however, mindful of the rights of others and the risks created by publishing certain materials. Therefore, we do restrict access to certain information that you can only obtain with special permission. As a result, you may find your movement from link to link in this website slowed or prohibited from time to time.

In the Ninth Circuit we are committed to serving the public and providing the best system of justice possible. We continually strive to improve our facilities, our programs and the services offered to the public. We welcome any suggestions or criticisms you may wish to offer regarding this website or our court system so that we can better serve you and the community.

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in the Ninth Judicial Circuit.

Raymond A. Cavanaugh
Chief Judge
