For those of you that are facing an appeal, your Record on Appeal can now be filed on line. (Hint: this is the easy new part). Go to the Dorothy Brown Clerk of Court Website and click on Appellate efiling.
Now that was the easy part.
Next are filing the Record on Appeal (once you get it) online and the Docketing Statement.
So you go to the Court of Appeals/Supreme Court website and you try to find the portal.
You click on “ebusiness”. No apparent portal.
So here’s the secret (and this is proof of too many corrupt cases and don’t dare file an appeal and we’ll put your screwed up case in a non citeable “Rule 23” Opinion), you have to click on one of “The Choices” for efiling in the 1st district court of appeals.
Now you can click about a dozen links on the SCOI/court of appeals website and go no where.
This process is about as obscure as it could be. There is no “easy” button on efiling the 1st district court of appeals, nor is there any “click here stupid” link.
What is wrong with a “click here stupid to file your 1st dist. court of appeals stuff”?
Nope, they’re not going there.
So here is the secret:
Go here: http://efile.illinoiscourts.gov/service-providers.htm
I guess this is good, there is competition and you can compare benefits.
I’ll give you a hint, choose the first link, the fee is free. Free is good for my indigent/middle class clients.
Odyessy does a good job, but once you get there, you will never remember the URL, so bookmark it. If you don’t know how to use a bookmark, ask a kid or someone under 30, or call me. I won’t even make fun of you like those under 30 will.
Set up an account and bingo, you can efile your Docketing Statement and your briefs.
If you click from the Dorothy Brown Clerk of Court website, you can get to Pat O’brien’s Chief of Appeals website to upload your transcripts (assuming the court provided a court reporter and you can afford to pay for them, or better yet, you got a private court reporter and don’t have to worry about someone changing them, or the court reporter was unlicensed, like they do at the IARDC–the ARDC will NEVER live that down, as long as I am alive and that will be for quite a few more decades thank you attys Larkin, Smart, Opryszek, Splitt and others. Go for it, you turned the ARDC into a circus with your prosecution of the only real, honest attorney out there).
So here is the secret to the new stuff and appealing all those corrupt probate, child custody and foreclosure cases.
Call me if you have tech problems or want to report those miscreant attorneys and judges now. That’s what I do now and I do it for free. Just a donation. Free is always the best, esp. if you are making min. wage or nearly that.
Illinois can no longer be for the clouted, wealthy and elite. The people have to take it back. And that means supporting the attorneys that work for free or low cost (me). I am the real thing, and no, the ARDC can’t stop me from helping everyone, the best I can.
Has the ARDC helped you? Has the ARDC given you your money back when attorneys take it and don’t do the work? Probably not. They don’t care, but they’re supposed to do that and protect the public.
Help me in turning the State of Illinois honest and accountable today.
Support this work. Search for me for grants. I am here and I am not going away.
I turn away no one, I help everyone. I do as much as I can do.
peace and light everyone
