On December 23rd, 2020, Presiding Judge E. Kenneth Wright, Jr. of the First Municipal District of Cook County Circuit Court ordered that all Mandatory Arbitration hearings scheduled between January 1st and February 5th, 2021 will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Arbitration center staff are directed to contact all parties involved by email to provide notice of the Zoom Arbitration hearing date and time. To maintain the court schedule, litigants are discouraged from filing motions for continuances, this will make scheduled hearings go much more smoothly.

Anyone with concerns about virtually conducting Mandatory Arbitration hearings via Zoom should contact the Administrator or Deputy Administrator for guidance.
