This blog is meant to catalogue comments about Cook County Circuit Court Judges with details about their demeanor, intellectual honesty, fairness, fund of knowledge of the law and procedure, judicial temperment, areas of expertise, mental health, judicial misconduct, cases they have decided and comments about their decisions, etc., so that the courts become more transparent and accountable to the world. We have to stop allowing the judges to be mysterious, onmipotent tyrants and start holding their feet to the fire.

I do not advocate or condone violence or illegal activities of any kind. I am not a lawyer and do not offer legal advice, all post are the opinion of the  person or group that is posting.

Please e-mail your comments about judges to and I will write them up and post them. Please state if you wish to have your name posted or if you wish to remain anonymous. All info must be verifiable so give enough contact info or links so I can verify it. I will post anonymous comments only if Ican verify the information without cost to me, except for phone calls or looking up a case file in Chicago or its suburban courts.

  1. Dr. Shelton,

    I would like to speak with you about a a case before Judge Harmening (51st & Wentworth). About a month ago, my 72-year old mom (who is mentally disabled) was arrested by the police. We had a court date this past Thursday, June 18th and had to go back again on Friday, June 19th. The court proceedings can only be described as absurd and unfair. I am outraged that this is even proceeding. I can be reached at XXX-XXX-XXXX, any day of the week after 1 pm. Thank you, Julie
