Bankruptcy Matters For The Collar Counties To Be Heard In Chicago

A new announcement has just been submitted by the Clerk of the United States bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Going forward in the post-Covid future, the outlying collar county court calls will no longer be heard in those collar counties. The matters will be heard via Zoom for Government or a party may appear at the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago.

Importantly, the Judges will be hearing the collar county matters from his or her bench in Chicago. This will eliminate the need to travel to the collar counties and will eliminate the need to acquire court space in those counties. Everything will be taking place in Chicago with regard to court for the Northern District.

It will be interesting to see whether attorneys and litigants choose to appear in person or continue to appear remotely via video. In any event, there will be no travel to the collar counties as was the norm prior to the Covid pandemic.
