As of July 1, 2019, the lllinois Supreme Court has ordered the 18th Judicial Circuit to migrate to eFilelL utilizing the Tyler Technologies system. The new filing system does not support DuPage County's current division of Small Claims filings of SC cases (under $5000.00) and SR cases ($5,000.00 - $10,000.00).   As such, effective July 1, 2019, Small Claims filings will be designated as SC filings, and the SR designation will no longer be in use.  Additionally, effective July 1, 2019 all Small Claims filings, including those filings with jury demands, will be split between Judge Ostling in Courtroom 2006 and Judge Else in Courtroom 2000. The following schedule will be implemented for both Courtrooms effective July 1, 2019:
