Kane County will be well represented in the state Supreme Court efforts to make the Illinois judicial justice system more just equitable and practical.
State officials this week announced that Kane County 16th Judicial Circuit Court Services Division Lisa Aust has been selected to be a member of the state’s Cost of Supervision/Detention Task Force.
The task force is one of several that the Illinois Judicial Conference developed to achieve eleven Strategic Initiatives during 2021. The task forces and initiatives are part of an inaugural strategic plan for the Illinois Judicial Branch that the Illinois Supreme Court adopted in 2019.
Aust was identified through a vetting process undertaken by the Illinois Judicial Conference and senior staff of the Association of Illinois Courts, as one of the most qualified individuals to be on this task force. The Illinois Supreme Court approved the appointment, Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne M. Burke said.
“While we all remain uncertain of what the court system will look like in the future, we do know that the focus and momentum surrounding these Strategic Initiatives will ensure a more just, equitable, and practical justice system in the future despite these difficult circumstances,” Burke said.
