WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1963' ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE ELEVEN Courts Are Updated by Amendment SPRINGFIELD, 111. (Special) — The Judicial Reform Article amending the Illinois Constitution will bring the state's court system into the 20th century, said Gov. Otto Kerner Tuesday night at the annual dinner of the Coutt- ty Clerk's Assn. at Springfield. Citing various changes that will be made In the system, the governor said that cases will be d patched more rapidly because the streamlined-structure of the court system will eliminate the confusion often caused by a multitude of courts. "Those contemplating litigation need no longer ponder which court their particular case should enter," he continued. 'All trial cases will now be under the Circuit Court, with appeals on a direct basis, either to the Appellate Court for most cases, or to the Supreme Court for specific cases. A new flexibility in the use of judges will result in gigantic strides in erasing the enormous backlog of cases presently smothering many courts, the governor said. Under the Judicial Reform the Supreme Court has the authority to assign trial judges temporarily to overburdened courts and this use of judges where needed will result in much faster action for trial cases, many of which have been pending for several years. Gov. Kerner also pointed out that the judges, by being allowed to seek re-election on their own record, without opposition or party designation, will be freed from partisan politics. He said that the simplicity and flexibility of the new system, along with a sharp reduction in the number of appeals, will result in a savings to persons involved in court cases. The savings, he added, will also be felt by taxpayers as court time for each case is diminished.
