Out of the 155 cases filed in the Northern District of Illinois during the three-year time period from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022, the claimant prevailed 75 percent of the time on default judgment or consent judgment, and the claim defendant prevailed zero percent of the time. The requested injunctive relief has almost always been granted: temporary restraining orders (100 percent), preliminary injunctions (99 percent), and permanent injunctions (100 percent). Furthermore, the median time to injunctive relief is 11 days for a temporary restraining order, 42 days for a preliminary injunction order, and 105 days for a permanent injunction order.
