Illinois Courts now offers two ways to be notified of news and court-related information.

Recent Supreme Court Opinions


The following opinions were uploaded to the Illinois Courts Web Site on the indicated Posted date. This listing will be maintained for 90 days
at which time the oldest opinions will be moved to an Archive table.

All Opinions are in PDF format. To view a PDF file you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available free of charge. The default Firefox PDF viewer will not display the authentication signature.

Authentication: Appearing at the top of published Illinois court opinions, beginning in 2016, is a symbol indicating that the PDF document has been “digitally signed by the Reporter of Decisions” and attesting to “the accuracy and integrity of this document.” The Uniform Electronic Materials Act (5 ILCS 180/1 et seq.) requires the publisher of an official electronic record to authenticate that record. The Reporter of Decisions thus certifies that the authenticated opinion is a true copy of the official, published opinion.

NRel beside case number indicates slip opinion not yet released for publication.
Official Reports indicates the final, released version of the opinion.

For additional information, please read A Caution on Court Opinions.

Sorting Opinions: Opinions may be sorted by 'Posting Date', 'Filing Date', 'Docket #', 'Public Domain Citation #", or 'Case Name.'  Click on the column name/header, the opinions will sort in descending/ascending order.
