In an interview with several news outlets, Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride, ’81, discussed funding levels of the Illinois state court system and allowing cameras in Illinois courtrooms.

Reductions in the number of probation and court services workers in some counties can mean fewer services for defendants, he said. "Low-risk offenders may not be getting the kind of follow-up and monitoring they need,” said Kilbride.

Kilbride also said allowing more cameras in courtrooms allows the public to have a better understanding of how courts function.
