(Waukegan, IL) With the pandemic coming to an end across the country, the Lake County Courthouse is returning to something a little more normal. Chief Judge Mark Levitt has ordered the courthouse in Waukegan to return to pre-pandemic in-person operations. The order would end most regular virtual hearings, except in extenuating circumstances. The Chief Judge also said in-person access to the courts could help address the massive delays that were caused by the pandemic policies. The new policy goes into effect on May 9th.
