On November 10, 2010, powerful Chicago Alderman Ed Burke (14th Ward) introduced a resolution pertaining to the foreclosure process in Illinois. After citing a desire to "protect Chicago residents from all harms attributable to the foreclosure crisis" then citing the recent rule changes in New York requiring foreclosure counsel to affirm certain matters under oath relating to their foreclosure complaints, Alderman Burke's resolution urges the Illinois Supreme Court to enact rules comparable to those recently enacted in New York. A copy of the resolution is attached. The resolution was referred to the Committee on Finance, which Alderman Burke chairs. As of this date, the resolution had not yet appeared on the published agenda for the next Finance Committee meeting. Alderman Burke's wife, Anne Burke, is an Illinois Supreme Court Justice.
