APRIL 24, 2020. COVID-19 UPDATE. FEDERAL COURT UPDATE

Today, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois entered Third Amended General Order 20-0012, further extending all deadlines in civil cases by an additional 28 days from the extensions previously provided for in the Second Amended General Order 20-0012. Civil case hearings, bench trials and settlement conferences scheduled for on or before May 29, 2020 are stricken, to be re-set by the presiding judge to a date on or after June 1, 2020. However, any party may request, by motion to the assigned judge, that a telephonic hearing or settlement conference (by remote means) be conducted prior to May 29, 2020. Any such request shall specify the need and time urgency for the telephonic hearing or conference, as this exception is not intended to invite requests for routine status hearings. Civil jury trials scheduled on or before June 26, 2020 are stricken, to be re-set by the presiding judge to a date on or after June 29, 2020.
