Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter
Since 1959, the weekly Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter newsletter has been helping Illinois trial attorneys to simplify case evaluation, and prepare for successful litigation or settlement negotiation. This publication focuses on matters tried in the Circuit Court of Cook County and the U.S. District Court in Chicago. Trial summaries include the case name/number, venue, judge, verdict, trial lawyers, testifying expert witnesses, treating physicians, and a paragraph that outlines the factual and legal arguments. Use this newsletter to locate recent awards for like injuries, or find expert witnesses who have testified. Subscribers to the Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter automatically receive our monthly Settlements publication. When combined with our monthly Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter-which summarizes Illinois trials conducted outside of Cook County-you have the most comprehensive collection of Illinois jury verdicts and settlements at your fingertips.

Trial summaries include the case name/number, venue, judge, verdict, trial lawyers, testifying expert witnesses, treating physicians, and a paragraph that outlines the factual and legal arguments. No source of civil jury verdicts carries more weight with Illinois attorneys! Subscribers to the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter automatically receive our monthly Settlements publication.
Arbitration Reporter - Cook Country
This Jury Verdict Reporter newsletter summarizes Cook County civil cases tried after the mandatory arbitration award was rejected. Cases are primarily motor vehicle collisions. Summaries highlight how the jury verdicts differed from the arbitration awards. Pertinent statistics and graphs provide insight into not only the outcomes featured in that monthly issue of the newsletter, but into the full history of the mandatory arbitration program which started in 1991. Case summaries that appear in this newsletter are not duplicated in the weekly Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter. You may purchase this product below.
Settlements By Categories
This monthly newsletter features brief summaries of negotiated settlements that were reported from across Illinois. Cases are grouped by category (e.g., Auto PI; Premises Liability; Medical Malpractice; etc.), and are accompanied by average settlement values and running case counts. The settlement summaries routinely include the case number, venue, plaintiff attorneys, amount of the settlement, defendant/insurer who paid the settlement, and a short statement of the plaintiff's claims. The Settlements by Categories newsletter is included at no additional cost with a subscription to either the Cook County or Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter newsletter.

Each bi-monthly issue contains concise digests of recent Illinois Supreme Court and Appellate decisions (including unpublished Rule 23 matters), as well as 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals opinions that address damages. Each case digest begins with a brief headnote of the opinion, indicating the subject matter of the case on appeal.
