At times you will see a letter following the court-assigned identifier number. The letter U indicates that the opinion is unpublished per Supreme Court Rule 23. The letter B indicates that the opinion is the second opinion filed under the same docket number. If there is a third opinion filed under the same docket number, you will see the letter C. This pattern will continue for any additional opinions filed under the same docket number. Finally, if the opinion was issued from the Workers’ Compensation Commission Division, the letters “WC” will follow the identifier number.
A complete public-domain citation will include the following information, in order: (1) the case name, (2) the year, (3) the court abbreviation, (4) the identifier number, and (5) the pinpoint cite to the paragraph number. To demonstrate all of this, let’s look at a few examples:
• Supreme Court: People v. Leach, 2012 IL 111534, ¶ 5.
• Appellate Court: People v. Cobian, 2012 IL App (1st) 980535, ¶¶ 19-21.
• Unpublished: People v. Cooper, 2012 IL App (1st) 102545-U, ¶ 50 (unpublished order under Supreme Court Rule 23).
2. Illinois Supreme Court Rule 23
Illinois Supreme Court Rule 23 addresses what are commonly called “unpublished opinions.” The citation format you should use when citing to unpublished opinions is addressed in the Manual, discussed in the next section. But, attorneys should realize that Rule 23 prohibits attorneys from citing to unpublished opinions unless you do so “to support contentions of double jeopardy, res judicata, collateral estoppel, or law of the case,” or to provide the reader with a fuller understanding of the history of a case. Thus, the Illinois Supreme Court Rules prohibit attorneys from citing to unpublished opinions in most situations.
Rule 23 in Il. the states way to crush anything you have done to prove your record to just destroy anything you put on the record moving forward to have any records they are sealed and can’t be used in any lea gel proceeding moving forward .
