As everyone is aware, ccportal (currently available only to Illinois licensed attorney) has all of the Cook County cases AND documents live. If you do not have an attorney who can access for you and you are poor and indigent or in need, let me know and I will try to find someone for you to do this (not sure why it is not available to Illinois NPOs and NGOs but that’s a whole other story for Iris Martinez, for sure)
so here is the email I received today when asking about a case. It’s total good news!

As soon as the Law Division goes live with the new Odyssey Case Management System later this month, all Law Division dockets and images will be available on CCC Portal (the existing 1970s-era case management system does not have the capability to interact with CCC Portal). Once the whole Office is live on Odyssey CMS, dockets and images from throughout the State will be available on RESearch IL, the PACER-type system selected by the Illinois Supreme Court. For now, we can email you requested copies of documents.
Elena Shea Demos, J.D.
Chief Deputy Clerk, Law Division
Iris Y. Martinez, Clerk of the Circuit Court
First Judicial District, State of Illinois
50 W. Washington Street
Richard J. Daley Center, Room 801

So this is good news and good progress. Thanks to Elea Demos and Iris Martinez
