Great Judge

Comment #: IL1488
Can barely rule on the most simple motions. Cases languish forever and he does not care; yet he professes to understand about the demise of the civil justice system. He should look in the mirror to see a major cause for people's belief that the civil justice system is broken. Just plain awful.
Unless you want your case to last for decades take an SOJ.

I like Judge Flynn. He reads what you write.

Such a tacit agreement among the parties does not compel the court to conclude that there is no issue of
material fact, and it does not obligate the trial court to render summary judgment in either party's favor. See Andrews v. Cramer, 256 Ill. App. 3d (766, 769 0.993).

He tried to do the work of the other side when he decided that he wanted them to get to a certain outcome, but found that their arguments failed to get them there.

Comment #: IL644
Can't seem to make a decision about anything. Routinely denies both sides' cross-motions for summary judgment even when both sides agree that there are no genuine issues of material fact. A straightforward coverage DJ can languish with him for years while he does his very best to avoid making a decision.
