  1. Is there any clue when the Illinois SC might produce more opinions? The website hasn't been updated in awhile.
  2. For anyone who wants to review it: https://livestream.com/blueroomstream/events/9537630/videos/218572635 Starts at around 1:36:50
  3. More likely scenario is that trial court grants her a win and the State doesn't object or appeal and everything stays as it is.
  4. Do you mean Summoned? That just means you're suing him too.
  5. Not quite. 18 U.S.C. § 921 (20) states in part "....Any conviction which has been expunged, or set aside or for which a person has been pardoned or has had civil rights restored shall not be considered a conviction for purposes of this chapter. So if your rights have already been restored, you're good. If you haven't appealed and won yet, it will depend on what happens to 430 ILCS 65 and what, if anything, takes its place. As for passing NICS, Illinois would need to remove the disqualifier.
  6. The denial letter you received should explain what you need to do to appeal. Either to ISP or Circuit Court. If it's to ISP, include all official paperwork, notarized.
  7. Ah. Than Circuit Court won't have jurisdiction. Here is the stuff you must submit together: https://ispfsb.com/Public/Firearms/FOID/NonMentalHealth.pdf
  8. That is not 100% accurate. It depends on why you were denied. Some reasons have only a circuit court remedy. The denial letter should state what your possible recourse options are.
  9. I still recommend an attorney. But based on what you've said, you'll need to appeal in circuit court. I'm guessing your denial letter stated something similar to: "application was denied pursuant to 430 ILCS 65/8(p) which reads: “An adult who had been adjudicated a delinquent minor, under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 for the commission of an offense that if committed by an adult would be a felony.” and the statute: 430 ILCS 65/5(e) the Court may grant relief if this Petition is filed more than 10 years after the adjudication of delinquency and if the Court determines that the applicant should be granted such relief. There's about a 99.99% chance that Cook County will object.
  10. Ugh... good luck... I would contact Attorney Fred Nickl. Not cheap, but he's your best bet for Cook County.
  11. It should say on your denial what your options are. make sure to keep that letter in a safe place. It will be needed if you need to file a petition.
  12. I agree with your sentiment but I'm confused as to your expected result. This is a court case. Public opinion should have no bearing on the decisions the Justices make. Unless of course you feel a strong show of support would encourage them to grant "any and all such further relief as this Court deems just and proper."
  13. There are other threads with exact same issue and the resolution. Short answer: Wait 90 days. If status isn't updated yet, contact your attorney and/or State Rep. Edit: Contacting the ISP via phone, email or mail is basically just wasting your time.
  14. Just wanted to mention that I reached out to Gayle Schor on March 20. On March 21 she responded and asked for more info. I supplied the info later that day, and have not heard anything else from her. I don't know if she thinks my case would be too difficult (though I wouldn't think so...), maybe she's too busy, maybe, maybe, maybe.
