Weekly Call Sheets available in various formats.
Call sheets are posted weekly, approximately one month before the status call date. Chicago trial settings will be posted roughly one hour after the status call ends.
Accident Location Table (last changed 11/13/14) is available online. It lists every town in Illinois and its hearing site. Cases are assigned to the hearing site closest to the site of the accident. If the accident occurred outside of Illinois, the case is assigned to the site closest to the petitioner's home. If the petitioner lives outside of Illinois, the case is set at the site most convenient to the parties.
Commission rules provide that cases that were filed three years ago or more must proceed to arbitration unless the parties show they have good reason to wait. Please note the timetable for these red-line cases:
Commission rules provide that cases that were filed three years ago or more must proceed to arbitration unless the parties show sufficient justification for continuance. These cases are referred to as "redline cases". The Commission tracks whether a case is considered a "redline case" by calculating three years or more from the date the case is filed to the date of the status call for the case.
Section 9020.60 b) 2) D) i) of the Commission rules allows an arbitrator to continue a case for three years; after that time, the arbitrator shall set the case for trial unless a party submits a written request to continue the case for good cause. The request must be received at least 15 days before the status call and contain proof of service on all parties to the case. An objection to the request, with proof of service, must be received by the arbitrator at least seven days before the call.
Please refer to the posted "Arbitration Procedures" for information on how Status Calls will be conducted. If the petitioner does not provide a written request and in the absence of good cause the case shall be dismissed for want of prosecution. Unless these provisions are met, the arbitrator shall set the case for trial. If the petitioner fails to appear without good cause on the trial date, the case shall be dismissed. If the respondent fails to appear without good cause, the arbitrator may conduct an ex parte hearing.
