Illinois

In Illinois, the Circuit Court is the court of original jurisdiction. There are 23 circuits in Illinois. Five are single-county (Cook, Will, DuPage, Lake, and McHenry); the other eighteen circuits contain two to twelve counties per circuit. The Circuit Court hears all civil, criminal, traffic, and probate cases, except those that go to Arbitration Panels (lawsuits of $30,000 or less in Cook County, and $50,000 or less in 16 other counties), and those that go directly to the Supreme Court (which has the discretion to hear cases relating to revenue, mandamus, prohibition, and habeas corpus).
