Good morning, my question is I have an upcoming court date on the 27th of February this is a status case for a pre-existing criminal case I've served my two years of probation and been in complete compliance of my court order I do still have remaining days left to do for my swap. The situation has arrived at work where I have a chance for a very large advancement opportunity to improve my career. I was told by the Circuit Court in DuPage Illinois that my only option is to bring the case forward, then to ask for a continuance because I will be unable to be at court on the 27th.because of this work situation. I'm concerned about moving mycase forward because I don't want the judge to tell me I am not in total compliance cuz I have not finished all my swap yet. I'm very concerned and what potential outcome Maybe any advice would be much appreciated.

I contested a red light, no left turn on red arrow,

I contested a red light, no left turn on red arrow, violation in the City of Chicago Heights whereby I did not make a left turn but signaled out of the left turn only lane and lane-changed to merge with straight-forward traffic. However, judgement returned I was still in violation of the no left turn red light arrow. I feel the administrative decision is in error, an attempt at extorting me, and plan to appeal the administrative order it in circuit court. I did not make a turn; isn't the violation in error?

A County Court Judge has granted Plaintiff's leave to amend

A County Court Judge has granted Plaintiff's leave to amend a complaint, attached with the Complaint, and granted sua sponte the case be transferred to Circuit Court. The Order directing same was used to open a new case with a new number in Circuit Court, with a link referring to the County Court files. My question is, would it be proper to now change the styling of the amended complaint to E-File it into the under the new Case and Court jurisdiction, and if so, would this still be an Amended Complaint, or would that distinction be dropped? I ask, because the Circuit Court Clerk acted as if everything starts over, even though the Circuit Court Judge has access to the County Court records and numerous motions were granted and denied in that case, which those rulings still hold in the Circuit Court.
