From Lanre Amu:
Survey to gauge service quality of circuit courts Illinois judges want to know how people really feel about them.
Chief judges in all 24 judicial circuits will issue surveys at most courthouses in the
state to ask court users — from attorneys to litigants to media and the general public — about their experiences with their local court system.
The goal, Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Rita B. Garman said, is to gain insight about the public’s perception of the state’s court system and make changes wherever necessary.
“It is the court’s obligation to be accountable and provide justice in a fair, equitable and expeditious manner, and, therefore, we look forward to the end results of this survey,” she said in a statement.
The surveys will be conducted from April 13 to May 1. They seek to gather participants’ demographics as well as general perception of and personal experiences with the court system.
My question is, has anyone actually seen these surveys? Are they in existence? Who has received them? How can we get them, fill them in and turn them back.
And finally, if we have been consistently turning in complaints to the ARDC and the Presiding Judge, what do they need a survey for?
